Regular readers of the magazine may have caught furniture maker David Moore's article in issue 220 on making and using scratch stocks. also ran a video with in-depth instruction regarding the same topic.

Well, it seem as though David hasn't stopped there. His followup instructional video on how to inlay a diamond pattern with sweeping curves is just as informative and just as easy-to-follow.

Every time I do any inlay like that I have to scrape them individually them lightly bring them together. You are just sanding away! When I do that, I get red maple.... Beautiful work. I will use those tecniques on my next guitar!
