Router inlays | Who knew it could be that easy!?

In this video, I’m sharing a foolproof method for creating perfect router inlays using templates. First an epoxy inlay of a paw print, then a wood on wood inlay using a ‘pig profile’ router inlay template. The secret is to use guide bushings or a router inlay kit. Plus, I’ll also do some router table template routing to create a curved charcuterie board handle.
