When Garrett Hack was here, he did a very quick little demo on string inlay, boy did it light a fire under me, all I can say is "WOW..... COOL"
I thought this would be a very difficult and time consuming thing to do, but, at it's most basic level, it is not
I did a bit of it and now I'm going to do more and more, and make up some very simple tools to help me along the way.
If you watch the 3rd video on >> THIS PAGE << you will get a very good idea about this stuff.
Garrett Hack also has a good article on Fine Woodworking, but you have to be a member to see it, (they do have a free 15 day trial).
I'll post some pics of the work I'm doing and the tools I'm making as I go along, I'd really appreciate some comments from the guys who do this type of work now, and any links to more info you might have.
