Powder Inlaying

02 November, 2014

Powder inlaying is one of the minor branches of woodturning. I can rarely inlay wood with ought a natural void or wormhole. I will now show you how to inlay wood with a turquoise powder:

First I will turn the wood down, find a wormhole and pour turquoise powder into the void.

Next I use some thin CA (cyanoacrylate) or super glue and that will penetrate the powder and harden it.

The final step is to sand the excess powder off and polish the wood.

 This completes the process of inlaying.

 

Here are two bowls I did using turquoise:
