Hi - I've got a small shop and like to build items like boxes and cutting boards. Most of what I build is embellished with inlay work, (for ex:cheeseboards with typical cheese shapes inlaid).
I am interested in learning more about inlay techniques and am contemplating building a CNC setup to improve the accuracy of the recess/inlay relationship.

You might start with reading some of the discussions here about guide bushings, templates, and such. Using one of the commonly-available inlay bit kits, you may find that CNC is overkill. Or, not. Your choice, of course.

If all else fails, one might take inspiration from the fact that the old timers made all that fancy inlaid furniture by hand.

Hi - Thanks for the input. Currently I'm doing things the "by hand" way. I've just customized a Dremel router base to allow accurate adjustment and have the ability to accept inlay bushings. I hope this will simplify the process!
