    Dewey,

    Excellent tutorial! I think it should maybe be a sticky for a while and then posted for permanent reference as an article.

    Quick question. It may not matter, but what kind of glue do you use to adhere the inlays??
    By the way. Thanks for the tips and instructions. Great work.

    Titebond III (or your favorite brand WW yellow). You are not concerned with slow set as these go together real quick. Epoxy would not be favorable.

    Larry..you should have it shortly.

    I'm trying to upload it to a server, but am having difficulty at work. I'll have to try when I get home.

    Hey thanks so much for posting this Dewey. I will be tucking that PDF version away for a time when I am feeling adventerous.

    Beautiful work and great tutorial. You said that the full fans are 45 degrees and each piece is 11.25 degrees. from the picture it looks like the outside of the fan is a right angle, which makes it 90, and then 22.5 degrees for each piece.

    Yes Jim you are right. I fell embarrassed about that. I was trying to make this thing accurate and ....

    (Dewey looking on the bright side)...

    Hey the one person who made no mistakes got nailed to a cross!

    All,
    I you haven't started one of these yet, please update the angles. Jim thanks for keeping me honest and I hope you didn't find this out as you were trying to make one.
