This is an inlay radius cutter I made out of Cherry. I blogged the entire process here on LJ, and in my personal blog.

I was wondering what the purpose of that tools was, so I searched around and it looks like it cuts grooves for string inlays. I was wondering how you chipped the circle out to get a round inlay in there! :) Nice work, and a great way to save some bucks on a specialty tool.
