Beautiful!! I am amazed to hear this is your first string inlay project. When I saw your post I couldn't believe my eyes. The very same project plan was my inspiration for enrolling in this Craftsy class in the first place! I need to continue working on a few other skills before I will feel ready to tackle it - but I know I will get there soon. Thank you for the inspiration and well done!

Thanks for the comments. I had the magazine article around for 3 years, saw the class and that reignited my interest. I made several templates for the router to follow for the cutting of the grooves, and always tried everything out on scraps before holding my breath and actually cutting on the mahogany. You will be able to do the inlay, the course gave me about everything I needed. Ron
