I cut the bow tie with a scroll saw, trace it out where I want it on the wood, then chisel to the depth I need. Glue it in place, cut it flush, sand and done. If you take your time, you can get a clean tight fit.

Here is one I did on a butt joint. I ripped some 4/4in half then used a 1/6 dovetail gauge to lay out the dutchman. Sanded it with just a bit of bevel. Marked it out. Chopped away with my chisel staying in side my lines. Made sure that was what I wanted 4 times. Spread some glue and beat it home. Sanded it flush and done.

Thanks for the input and both hand and power techniques.Ill try the chisel method first as I dont want to buy all that stuff from Rockler just for these.
