Want to do your own custom inlay? We created this video series with master inlay artist Craig Lavin to show you every step from design to final installation.

In this second episode Craig discusses inlaying on a finished guitar vs a new build, positioning, gluing, and tracing the inlay, and setting the router depth. Next Craig demonstrates routing the pocket, checking the fit, gluing in the inlay, and filling any gaps with ebony dust and a Sharpie.
