My question is, why not stain first and then inlay? I know you HAVE to
stain it because after all, it's Norm. The only other option is paint.
But why not stain it first and then do the inlay so you don't have to
worry about bleeding? Is it because the router sliding over the
stained wood might scratch it?
Most likley the stain is a NGR type and has a solvent base that turns the
tape adhesive into a sticky mess. Not only will the stain penetrate the tape
but the residue will interfere with the finish coats....mjh
