Inlay test: Take Two

I'm fighting with the inlay again. Time to try something planned-out more thoroughly. I've made a guide for the Dremel attachment to follow exactly the lines that I want to have on the fretboard:

With this I can rout a much nicer channel for the inlay.

The dust from the routing gets mixed with epoxy to have something roughly the same color filling any gaps

And I can now glue two lines of wood strips in - maple and padauk. Leaving this overnight to make sure the epoxy sets in and then we'll see what came out.
