Sink and Fill is a technique I developed myself. The design is first traced onto the surface and defined with a scalpel. It then involves sinking the outline using a miniature router, sharp chisels and a scalpel to define the edges. Filling the well with various chunks of different wood types and miscellaneous materials held in place with super-glue to create an artistic picture. The well is then filled with a mixture of sawdust and epoxy glue and tamped down well. After curing overnight the surface is reduced to the original level using a sanding drum and hand scraping.
