Miscellaneous Projects

I made several attempts to cut out the abalone (mother-of-pearl) pieces for the guitar fretboard inlay in the previous image. Below is a piece resulting from an attempt with a laser-cutter, which yielded unusable results. Above is a piece resulting from the method which was successful (learned from an online forum): Glue the abalone to a board with water-soluble glue, and then after cutting the pieces, soak them in water until they float free!
