Inlay Master

There are always questions about inlays and what can be done and how. This guy does some amazing and very detailed inlay work! He uses V-carve I noticed…and I am sure other software as needed. Very worth the watch. He is Russian and the video’s are in Russian, with translation at the bottom. I have not yet watched any of his how to videos, but at some point plan on it. I think this is a great example of what can be done! Very inspirational! @PhilJohnson I can see you doing some of these down the road. if the link doesn’t work, his you tube handle is mtmwood…well worth the lookup.


Been watching his video’s for a while now. So impressed with his work. Sometimes down right awe!!

I just watched his Coat of Arms project. He isn’t messing around with his depth of cut. WOW!

It was a combination of Bob Clagett and this guy, that originally convinced me to buy my X Carve.

My plan was to make inlay chopping boards like he does but believe me, it’s much harder than he makes it look. Having only a small lunchbox style thicknesser (plus the fact that my workshop is tiny) have forced me to give up that dream!

He is unreal, love his mineral oil bath and his hydraulic press. You reckon he just makes cutting boards as a day job?

yes he does. and it seems he’s making very good money doing it. Been watching his vids for a few years now. Even from before he had a cnc and made mathematical patterns and flag geometry just using the table saw. His first inlays were pretty basic, now he’s doing very intricate work.

1 thing to note though, he only does end grain work. This REALLY helps with respect to DOC and cut quality.
