    I don't have a problem with the way I clamp, I like going old school every time :coffee:

    Yeah, nowt wrong with G clamps, but I remember how long it took me to get to 30 clamps - it's a lot of money for someone just starting out!

    I like this way of clamping. you still need some other clamps if you're doing bigger bodies like an explorer but it's pretty efficient.

    Did I miss it? What's the inlay material?

    I've been tempted to some kind of pattern routing and then fill it with InLace.

    Well it kind of goes like this...I went out to buy some Danish Oil and ended up going down the devils arse. True story, I've been there 2 days now.

    I really hope that isn't Influenza A you're talking about. It's been hell this year.

    Rather than thinking the worst, perhaps that's the name of your local pub...

    Out of the devils arse now. It's an ancient underground cave system, we did the first section by cave boat and liked it so much that we stopped in the Derbyshire peak district over night and did the rest of the caves the day after. I picked up some prehistoric shark teeth (in the pic below) :idea:

    Yes they are. I've just finished the top set, I'm removing my lower teeth tonight so they should be in later, I'll post a NTD.

    Done.
