To start the X-Carve journey right I have made two inlay cutting boards. Each board took about 2h from opening Easel to last wipe of the mineral oil. I follow the tutorial by Mo and used the inlay app built into Easel.
The first board was done using 1/2" hard maple as the base, and a random piece of 1/8" material for the inlay.
Second board was done using 1/2" wenge as the base and 1/8" hard maple for the inlay. Wenge was a very cool wood to work with. Very dense and solid, I like it a lot.
Both boards were finished using the Wood Finishing Kit.
I have used the Linux Easel driver when carving the wenge board.
Lessons were learned - for first inlay I have not used tabs which caused the letter E to split in half. Second time I have placed a few tabs and it made a huge difference, looks like double sided tape is not enough for thin lettering. Any ideas how can I patch the holes so the board is still usable?
