You are definitely a very helpful contributor. Having joined earlier this year, I am a bit addicted to seeing new projects and learning from the various forum topics. The LJ community is great!! Are there ever “family reunions” when LJ gather in person?

The inlay kit is a great tool but it can’t do it all , inlay takes time an patience to end up with a outstanding finished piece that looks like you took your time and is worthy of praise. as to the correct technique beyond the inlay kit . It will differ depending on the shape size of the inlay also the type of material your using and the size and type of router or dremel bit your using. The other suggestions that include free handing with a router ,carving tools are options. You might consider scoring your outline with a knife after a very light pass with the pattern an inlay kit. Some times it can be the basis like cutting in the correct direction with your router bit. The bottom line is what Tim said is practise practise practise and developing your own approach
