yo kosta. glad to see you are pounding out the work, literally. speaking of pounding, you may want to consider gluing the inlay, even though now it takes a hammer to pound it out. i’m just thinking about seasonal wood movement and how a shrinking piece of inlay may slip out of its hole. if you are using dimensionally stable material like plywood, then maybe forgetaboutit. if not, the inlay could fall out or swell and crack the surrounding wood. i dunno. jut thinking out loud. carry on.

-- Better woodworking through old hand tools.
