You can get powder copper in all types of grades .I have used it before to laminate between sheets of glass .and take it you can get most metals in this form.But would have thought it that this was brass, .copper is a bit soft for keys?
Copper sheet is also a nice material you may be interested in in once annealed its easy to cut beat and shape and would be a good materail for inlays a lot of it was used in the arts and craft movement ib the early 1900
as long as you treat it when a piece is finished it looks good
These are just experiments for now.I'm collecting diamond willow and have a great start,and have alot more to cut in the fall.I'll decide what I want to stick with later.People keep suggesting what to make and I don't want to do everything just a few specialty things.
Sounds good.I like doing the walking sticks and canes with a little design to them.I'm not much at carving except to make room for inlays.I was asked this morning to make curtain rods towel holders etc. from diamond willow.Those would be ok as they are just short walking sticks. LOL. I have a skull cleaning business and drive semi full time so I have options.Just gonna do what I like I guess.
This is really nice. I'm definitely going to try that on one of my future canes. I saw a similar post on reddit.com/r/woodworking but that guy was inlaying azurite into a cutting board I think. Thanks for the inspiration.
