If you are using an inlay bushing set, Going around a female pattern clockwise will always be into the grain and will hold the router against the pattern. Going counter-clockwise will always be a climb cut and you will have more trouble following the pattern. With these sets cutting the hole is not as critical as cutting the inlay because if the bit wanders from the pattern when you are cutting the hole you are wandering into the waste area that you are taking out anyway. If however you wander from the pattern when cutting the inlay piece, you’ve ruined the inlay piece.
