Very nice. Have you considered a little sand shading? Your cuts and fits are good. A little subtle shading would really make them sing.
Nice work.

sand shading had not heard of that sounds very interesting and I joined a Marquetry Society. I need to learn more.
I believe I’m using too thick of wood to do my inlays.

If you read up on marquetry you will find out lots about sand shading. I have several blogs here that touch on it but this is probably the best.
