I'm a student in antique furniture restoration and need to make
several lengths of narrow stringing (1.29mm x 1.29mm metric)(1/20"
imperial) in ebony, rosewood and ivory.
I have heard this is possible using a table router and would
appreciate some advice on how I should build a jig to do this.
Thank you, Nicky
Michael Fortune does a fair amount of fine line inlaying. Had
the privilege of attending one of his seminars on the subject.
With the exception of a bandsaw to slice thin strips to start
with, you can do the rest with a block of wood, some sand
paper and a few simple tools you can make. Here's the URL
to the stuff I put together on the subject after taking
You will find that the ebony and the rosewood will be tricky
to bandsaw without a good resaw fence. Fortunately I've
put together that info as well
Good luck and if you find other methods which work please
share the information with the group.
