Wire inlay is a very old decorative craft that has been around for centuries. People have been using wire inlay ornaments to decorate their weapons, fine furniture, jewelry boxes, and more. In this video I inlay a simple celtic knot pattern into a piece of cherry wood.
You don’t need a lot of tools to get started, just copper wire, a small chisel (I made it out of a flat-head screwdriver), a hammer, some superglue, sandpaper, and a piece of wood. The end result looks beautiful.
Note: I’m using a rolling mill to flatten the wire, but you can make a flat wire by hammering it on an anvil or flat slab of concrete.

Wow. I could never do that. There’s no way I could sand that fast.
