Lazy susan with TX state inlay

Used 4 different woods (cherry, alder, maple for the circle, and red oak for the inlay). Designed in Aspire, sent to UGS.

This was the first inlay project I have attempted, and thought it turned out very well (minus a couple small gaps, otherwise it was almost a perfect fit). It’s approximately 16" in diameter.


I used the inlay feature in Aspire. I need to try it in Easel next to see which one turns out better though!

Tarry - next time try the “v-carve inlay procedure” which is different from the inlay feature. It allows for perfect, gap free fit. It is described here:

The detail you can achieve is astounding.


I had no idea about that…thanks for the tip!!
