Thank you all for the post
My problem still exist tho, the inlay id like to do is 1/4" wide and it flows with the out line of the gun stock. I have some ides floating around in my head but really not sure it they will work and before i try it on the gun stock want to make sure it will work.
thank you again all for any imput you may have
Steve

Welcome,
Not sure this the best way, But I did a few inlays "Gold & silver" back when I was a Licensed gunsmith, I had a dremel, with a little router attachment. I would put masking tape on the stock, (forearm, in my case) transfer the pattern to the masking tape. I set the depth of cut a few thousands less the the gold inlay. Using one of those bench mounted lights with 20x lens, I carefully routed out the inlay. I had a little wooden mallet, that I hammered the gold or silver into the groove, then I would scrape the work to remove any high spots. Then sand it smooth, then buff it out. Was a slow process, but it worked. I had a set of special tools for the scrolls and light lines. My hands aren't that steady any more. Suggest you buy some scrap walnut and practice a while. It's not as hard to master as engraving, but harder than checkering.
Good luck!

Cut it twice, and it's still too short!
