I agree with the router idea. I trim router would work well, you could set the bit for the extremely low depth you need to install the inlay (it probably something like 1/16” right?), then use the above jig to cut out the outer ring. You could then take of the jig and route out the rest of the circle with the router freehand.

Norma did something very similar when he made some nesting tables once. At least I think that was the episode. You might check that out. I think he cut out the recess for the inlay with a dremel freehand.

Check out this video I found, I think it’s just what you want. Jump to around the 13 minute mark.

Let us know!
