View attachment 201662 Here is the pattern being applied to the chop before cutting.View attachment 201663 And post cutting and template routing with the inlay taped to the surface before cutting in into the chop.
View attachment 201664 The base assembled.
View attachment 201665 the chop with inlay complete in position waiting for the top to be placed before final trim.
I'll show the vise pictures later. The chop vise is pretty close to exactly what pop-pop has shown except for the dimensions to match the 17 inch screw I'm using.
