I have a lump of Holly timber (5”x4”) here in the UK which was cut down around four or five years ago, I want to use it to do inlays.

Horizontal inlays to my boxes (tissue boxes) would present no problems for me but vertical inlay against the grain I have never before attempted.
Thinking of these inlays doing an internal rectangular pattern, how do you folks over there do this kind of work and what tools do you use?
Links to your work and others would be of interest as well.

(holly btw is a very dense and hard white timber similar to box wood and used here mainly for turning)

I seriously considered getting a Jointmaker Pro to do that sort of thing:

but bought a CNC kit instead, which I rather regret.
