Hello everyone, my name is Santino and I just found this site today and all of the craftsmanship on the work was breathtaking. I noticed a lot of work using inlay and I am very novice when it comes to the intricate wood working but would like to become better. So in short my question is what is the best method to do an inlay, nothing fancy just basically a border around a sqaure or something of that nature? I looked for some kind of how to online and found nothing really, from what I did find it appeared the inlay was chiseled into the piece. Anyone know of any good resources or maybe share some of your own knowledge on this supject?

Thanks,
Santino
