I am getting started with inlay, and have a question. How thick should the inlay wood be? I ordered some veneer from Woodcraft, and it is REAL thin. It looks to be about 1/32” thick. This seems real thin to me and my 62 year old eyes. Is this what should be used? What would be a good sorce for buying wood for inlay work that is already cut? Thanks

Dale, here is a list of videos that Keith Cruickshank has produced on inlays that I have found to be interesting and informative. They might help answer some of your questions.
