What is a good resource to learn how to do inlays on say a Pembroke table? I have seen some awesome projects but they don’t have the process or pics in them. I want to fancy up my tool cabinet with white birch inlays.

If the item is not too large, inlays can be done using the “double bevel inlay” method. It is done using a scroll saw, but the size of the object is limited by the throat size of the scroll saw.

It would help if you posted up a photo showing what you want to do. Is it the string inlays? Or the more decorative patterns/photos? Most of it is probably veneer.
