A question on finishing: I want to make some black (Japanese style)
furniture, so will be using a dark stain. But part of the design will
be to use inlay on the top surface of the piece by routing a channel
and filling it with pre-cooked polymer clay tiles.
A little unusual, I know, and I'll play with many test pieces before
to see if this is going to work.
What sequence is used when staining in this situation?
1) Route inlay channel
3) Glue inlay into position
4) (How to sand inlay flat?, without affecting stain?)
5) (What stuff is good for filling any gaps between the wood & tiles?)
you can see the problem?
BTW: For examples on some polymer clay used on furniture (veneer,
rather than inlay) and what that stuff can look like, click here:
