Topic tags/keywords: inlaying pine

I’ve been considering how to add my logo to my guitar, ( my last name). Since I’ll be making lots of them, I was considering getting a branding iron. I like the rustic wood look. However, inlaying just occurred to me. I purchased a font that I really like and now I’m wondering how I can apply it via inlay. My guitar is pine. My guitar’s fretboard is grenadillo. I like the idea of sticking with the grenadillo for the letter inlays, but it is a hard wood.

Any advice or suggestions on how I might be able to do this?

Or should I just bag it as it might prove too difficult and risky?

Time consuming, but you’ll improve with practice.
