Piano room step inlay

Editor's Choice - Dec 10, 2015

I was asked to make an inlay that would help people notice the step into the piano room to prevent them from stumbling. Here is how it went. ๐Ÿ˜Ž All the inlays are a full quarter inch thick so the floors can be sanded in the future. My Porter Cable router died before I got half way through the big mill out. So I ran out and picked up a new Rigid one. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ I used a 3/4" rare earth magnet to locate all the flooring staples and marked them with a silver sharpie so I didnโ€™t hit them with the bit. Glued the inlays in with PL Premium (you can glue snot to a Frog with that) and finished with a bit of sanding and satin Varathane. Over all a great unique custom project. And it sure honed up my inlay skills.

Woods: hard maple black walnut

I also tinted my glue (Titebond 3) with India ink to show the glue lines and make the white keys stand out better.
