    Just got myself one of those little 3018 2D+ CNC things. Hopefully to do 12th fret inlays. Had a couple of practice goes, it's getting better.

    I'm using the black superglue. The inlay will be Blackwood but I just had a thought. Why inlay at all if I can just cut a shallow outline and fill?

    One thing at a time. Just in case you're interested,

    Well that was an interesting journey, especially as the fretboard was already glued to the neck but I'm well happy with the result,
