I have never done string inlay before but like to challenge to decorate
on going project.
Without knowing the requirements of the tools, I made these
just based on Lie Nielsen tool set photos on the WEB pages.
So, probably there are many in adequate designs of these tools.
Also, shapes of blade of each tool need to be redefined as I use.
Your suggestion is highly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Expertly crafted tools. It is a lost art, and you will enjoy doing it.

Those look great. I’ll bet they were alot less expensive to build than buy! Lie-Neilson has great tools, but they aren’t cheap!
