Complete Scroll Saw Double Bevel Inlay Technique Course. 39 Illustrated pictures.

The other day when I posted the picture of the rotating jewelry box with the inlaid initial it caused many emails. Several of you wanted to know how it is done. This pattern is a complete pictorial course of what is called double bevel inlay on the scroll saw.

The course will take you through the process of making a key fob with inlaid initials. On the last page of the book is the patterns you need to make this project.

The technique and patterns can be used on any project you make in the future. You can also do the inlay with basic shapes like hearts. 

This technique will give you perfecting fitting inlays. In the picture above you won't see any gaps. That is because of the technique we use. It works every time.

The following pictures are just high lights of what's in the book. There are 39 illustrated pictures with everything you need to make this project. 

Who am I?

My name is Steve Good. Many of you have been with me here on the Scrollsaw Workshop blog since the start back in 2007. Over the years I have talked with some of you and we have grown to know each other as much as is possible on the internet. I have friends all over the world in something like 80 countries. Pretty cool.

Every year the blog grows and new scrollers join the fun. I have received a few emails lately asking what my story is. I thought I would take just a few words to tell you who I am. If you care, read on. If not then close your eyes.

I am 61 years old and live in Lexington Kentucky with my wife Patty. We have one grown daughter, Kellie. She also lives in town with her husband Shane. We have another child of the four-legged variety. Our dogs' name is Holly. 

I am retired after 37 years with Xerox Corporation. I spent those 37 years as a technician. It was a great career. I worked with many smart and wonderful people at Xerox. I still stay in contact with many of them. 

My training before Xerox was a two year Associates degree in electronics. I hired on with Xerox right out of schools and spent my entire working career with them. 

My hobby other than the obvious is the computer. I became fascinated with computer technology in the very early days. I bought my first computer back in 1979. In the last 39 years, I have spent too many hours to count developing my skills with the computer. I have bought more computers than I can remember and have several up and running right now. 

My computer skills are general. I can program in a couple of different languages. I have built a few computers. I am close to expert level with many pieces of content creation software. I would say I am expert level with Corel Draw. That is the program that I use to design the scroll saw patterns. I have used it daily for thirteen years so I should know it pretty well by now.

I can work my way around web design software but am no expert. My son in law, who is a programmer/web designer/marketing expert says I have one the ugliest web pages on the internet. 
I learned my web design skills in the early days and it shows. One day I may try to take the blog into the modern era but that sounds like a lot of work.

I now spend my days working full time on the blog. When I say full time I actually mean a few hours a day. Some days it's four hours, other days it's ten hours. Most of those hours are fun. Some of the business-related stuff is not so fun but necessary so I do it when I have to.

That is pretty much my story.  I love working with the people in the scroll saw community. I hope to continue writing the blog for as long as I am able. Thanks for lsitening. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

RIKON 51-200 12-Inch Disc Sander

There are some tools in my shop that if they broke I would buy again that day. The Rikon 12 inch disk sander is one of those tools. It gets used on almost every project that leaves my shop. The size and power are perfect for my needs.

I own a less expensive combination belt/disk sander but it just sits in the corner now that I have this Rikon disk sander. The six-inch disk is just too small and it was underpowered. 

  • Rack and Pinion Table Adjustment
  • Large Working Table: 17-1/8-by-6-1/2-Inch working surface to securely support your work-piece
  • Dust Collection: Disc is designed with fan fins to aid in drawing dust away from the work-piece for cleaner sanding operation.

Think Safety

Remember to keep the safety of yourself and others in your work shop in your thoughts at all times. Always wear eye and ear protection. Follow all the manufactures warnings that came with your power tools. If I demonstrate something on this web site that you don't feel is safe, don't do it. Your safety is your responsibility. Fingers are handy things, try to keep all of them.
