I routed out a 3 1/8 by 5 1/4 oval for a Rockler inlay on the front panel of a maghony chest I am building for my grandaughter. Depth about 1/16 of an inch.
I have tried two different inlays without sucess. Both were so crinkly and fragile that I could not get it to glue in smoothly. I am now left with a 3×5 by 1/16 “gouge” in my fine wood that I had already finished.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can repair or fill this thing? Is it possible to cut the area to a square and deepler, say 1/4” and try to lay on a patch of some sort?
What about just sanding the area so the wood will match but will be left with an oval depression in the front panel of this chest? Is there a way that this would not be noticable?
Has anyone had success with these inlays from Rockler?
