I just read The Art of Wood Inlay by George Stevens and he lists a Crow's Foot as one of the needed tools for doing inlay work and shows a photo of one but he does not go into ANY detail about how you make one or how to use it. Can anyone shed some light on the topic of making and using a crow's foot or recommend a better book that provides more detailed instructions for inlay techniques? His book is good on showing some projects and gives some general instructions but it lacks in giving detailed insturctions for beginners.

Hi Skarp, Thanks, however, a photo in the book shows a much more complex design with 3 different size holes in it, and it has several curved edges. One example shows him using one of the holes as a guide to file a slight bevel on an inlay piece. I am sure someone with more experince than me can probably figure it all out but I am new at this and need more "how-to" directions.

Barbs and Skarp, Thanks to both of you for some great info and help. I really appreciate it and is a good starting point. I am also attempting to contact the author to see if he is willing to share more details.
I am looking forward to getting started and move beyond just doing simple shape inlays.
