Hello, all you inlay folk-
I've looked at books and websites, and done a little inlaying of single
letters in hardwood, but I haven't been able to find out how to do a
thing: inlay shapes that have tiny areas (like the serifs on a letter).
a star, for example. How do you create the recesses for the points?
A router certainly won't fit in there, nor will a chisel be able to
the bottom into the corner.
I'm not talking about marquetry and veneering, or banding or stringing
purfling; I'm talking about inlaying a star cut from veneer into a
of wood. How do you cut a recess for that? Any of you inlay types out
there have a technique for that?
