It looks sharp. Do you make a template or do you mark it out and use a real small router bit?

Thank you. I do it with a scroll saw. No router involved. Double bevel inlay. The maple goes all the way through the walnut so the image appears on the back also.

Jim, very nice. Is your entry hole in the children’s bangs? Which blade are you using?

Thanks guys, for the kind words. I use Flying Dutchman polar #5 blades. THE starter holes are at the base of the images. I drill them at a six degree angle so they disappear when the inlay is finished.

Jim,nice work,what angle do you do your inlay? is it ~2.5°? I must start a couple of inlay projects using SS.

I use 3/8” thick stock , a #5 blade, at 2.2 degrees tilt. Blade size and wood thickness will effect this angle.

Great job Jim! I have done a little ss inlay myself and I know how touchy it can be.
