    Now you have given me some great inspiration to use my new plunge base Bosch. Just gotta get the bushing kit.:-)

    The blooper at 15:45 had me laughing my ass off. This happens quite often with me especially when one is in a hurry. I could sense the frustration as soon as he dropped the positive piece into the negative. 🙂

    Hi Brian great video and you explained the steps great. The only thing I would like to know is where do you get the bushing and bits and attachments for the small bits. I will send you a email tonight about this. thanks so much again.. stan m

    would it work with veneer too?

    Nice clear video but I am still confused on how you match up the positive and negative with the use of the bushing spacer?  You said to reinstall the spacer when preparing to cut the "negative" piece but won't this move the router bit in closer to the center thereby making the negative piece too tight to accept the positive piece?  What am I missing here?

    Pace is just right, neither too fast but nor too slow or boring.
    Well spoken….  but most importantly thought and delivery process is just OUTSTANDING (tells you the sequence of things to do, what is important to know, and in a methodical & precise manner!).
    Video quality is EXCELLENT (sound is not too bad either).
    My favorite part of this video is with the DETAILS – something that most presentations lack (and thus tire & frustrate the audience). I think that is the most important asset of Brian's presentation! Well done my friend!…. you got me glued… will watch your other videos. Many thanks!

    So if I wanted to use this technique for inlays with 90 degree corners, would I use the router for the majority, and clean it up with chisel set to remove the debris from corners themselves?

    Excellent tutorial. I am just getting started and haven't used a router before, however, your video has helped me understand more and encouraged me to give it a try.  I fancy trying to add a Badger image to my bandsaw boxes.   Many thanks

    Nice tip with the playing cards. Countless projects stop because someone thinks they need to spend 20-50 bucks at the hardware store, while some oversimplified solution sat quietly in a junk drawer.

    Great video.  I used your techniques to patch some holes in composite decking.  I also owe myself a few dollars for forgetting to take off the spacer ring before cutting my first set of positives.

    Excellent tutorial;  Thank you Brian !! Do you think it may be possible to inlay a similar shape using my router in the table ?  Greetings from England

    Brian, thanks, this was an excellent video – the best video out there on doing sensible inlays. I used your technique to do some of my own inlays. Found Harbor Freight has a good price on the template guide.

    Like others, I've bought plans too. Some are good and some are trash…but before anyone purchases anything google Hyezmar's Woodworking Bible, it's free!

    Great instructional video Brian! I've had an inlay bushing/bit for a score of years and have never used it. When I do get ready to tackle an inlay project I'll definitely refer back to this vid. Great instruction and tips!

    What did you use to level the inlay?

    Thank you so much for that very informative video.. I really really have always wanted to see how inlays were made as they can add such old world charm and beauty to any piece. Can you make a suggestion as to what would be a good first router..( not cheap but not over the top expensive.) a nice mid grade router that will last quite a few yeArs for a hobbyist.( not someone who will be doing inlay everyday.?Ps. Your son is adorable!:) Would it be easier with a router table or no?? Thanks again!
