Here I inlay the golden heart, which will be hidden under a mussel shell inlay. The mussel shell is cut to size and sanded to fit on the disc sander. Sawdust is put into the inlay cavity to increase the bond of the glue and create a level surface for the shell to rest on.

"Hot Stuff" CA glue is spread onto the inlay with a bamboo stick, the glue is sucked into the joint and flows under the mussel shell, fixing the inlay in place.

The second part of the video shows various stages in the turning of the African blackwood mouthpiece.

The metal lathe used here is a fully restored custom Logan 821.
