I bought a marquetry inlay of a great Blue Heron. It occurred to me that during any kayak trip, the forward part of my deck will occupy 20% of my vision, and I'd like something nice to look at.
The instructions say that you can either inlay or onlay the piece . I decided to go for an "inlay". Routing out the recess was a little challenging-there is probably a clever sure-fire way to do it, but this one is going to need a little touch-up work. I used "shrink tape" to clamp it while the epoxy cured. I'll try not to show it again until the kayak is finished. See my entry about "Birds"
