Wood Inlays on a Guitar
January 18, 2014 9:07 AM Subscribe
So, my wife has purchased an acoustic guitar, and plans to try her hand at inlaying a rosette around the hole on the soundboard. Have any of my fellow mefites tried something of this sort, and if so, could you share your knowledge / words of wisdom?

In particular, any tools you used, or wished that you had used; tips to make the process go smoothly; things to be especially careful of; really any advice at all is appreciated!
Some details that may be relevant:
- she is a very patient scientist, and is good at detailed work.
- she has a Dremel, and we can purchase any attachments that may be useful
- she has done very well learning woodworking in general - we've made several pieces of furniture, and she's very creative, both in general, and in terms of using tools / materials for unusual purposes.
As always, thanks in advance for your advice :)
