I've been wanting to try it ever since I saw the video but you need a lot of different colored woods to do it like you have laying there and the only hardwood I have available is white birch. Apparently there is only one part of Japan where this type work is done and it's because they have quite a variety of trees growing there. The box in the video looked like the one in the attachment but had black, red, and green woods in it and was much more colorful than this example.
I've seen this before but forgot what they called it. I don't have one of those planes to cut paper thin pieces for gluing, though. It would definitely be fun to try this!

I’m with you. I would be making rosettes peg head overlays and inlays in the fretboards. Very cool score!

The one I saw showed him gluing the bundles together too. What I haven't seen and would like to see is more of them preparing the rods to glue together. They just touched on it in this one and not at all in the previous one I saw. I haven't been able to find any books on the process either. It may be something they don't want to talk about that much.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Does anyone know what the yellow/black one is to the left of the burl is? What about the white/grey underneath, and the dark brown with spots in the top left corner?

This piece? No idea. It's light as a feather and I assume it's something spalted. One piece has a high gloss yellowish finish, not sure why.
