Thanks Scotty! The tight inlays are a function of using an inlay kit. It's almost guaranteed to fit tight except for sharp points. I could have chiseled them out, but i chose to sand the inlay pieces instead. The most time spent was on making the patterns and being as precise as possible in laying them out on the stencil cards.
This would have looked nicer if done freehand, but I'd lose repeatability. I may also try one using a metallic gold epoxy instead of yellowheart. But I'll definitely freehand the recesses for that one.
