I want to start using mother of pearl and abalone shell for inlay on my projects. Does this have to be cut by hand with a jewlers' saw? I was thinking I could use my scrollsaw on slow speed with a jewlers' blade and zero clearance. Is the 000 blades the best to cut this material? Does anyone cut with a scrollsaw?
To cut the cavities, I have a Dremel and was going to purchase the base kit from Stewart MacDonald along with other necessary supplies.
Any help or direction with techniques or tools is greatly appreciated.
