Step 4: Rebates for inlays

Picture of Rebates for inlays
I marked out where all the details on the top were to go, and found the center points of the radius' of the corners.

I drilled little pilot holes and drilled all the corners with a forstner bit. Then scored in lines between the edges of each corner with a sharp knife.

I then took out the bulk using my router at a depth of 4mm. All the rest was taken out with chisel & mallet.

A long day of chiseling later, and all the rebates were done!
