Glue On Wood Flames.......


Recommended Posts

ok, so i've had this idea for a while and now i have a chance to act it out...

what if i was to take a thin top,say flame maple, and cut out flames(fire) on the ol' band saw(already did this part)

then could i just glue it on the the bodyand sand,shape,fill, it in.........

i've already cut the top a while ago out of boredom and spare wood.........

kinda inlay the wood flames into the top i assume?? that sounds kinda cool, it could be done but a lot work routing out the channels in the top wood for the flames i would think..but with time and patients i think it could be done

Ron Thorn has experimenet with something like that. he inlays the whole 1/2 inch figured top into the backing wood ( although he has the benefit of a CNC to do a more accurate and precise cutting )

here's the first one he did ( pretty cool i think )

Yeah the "melts" Those are neat looking.

The flame idea is pretty cool. Would be neat to dry fit your inlays, then dye them separately - do a yellow to orange fade on flames made out of quilted maple.. then inlay them into a dark stained contrasting top.. then epoxy and clear the whole thing.. that would look killer.
