I know how I can create one kind of fake inlay. I would like to know what is involved, at least at a basic level, how one creates inlays using traditional techniques and tools.
What tools could I use to create a traditional inlay? I envision a router plane and a coping saw for the actual inlay but it would be nice to know about anyone that has actually done it. More about custom shapes like leaves then just inlay strips that run the perimeter of a box.
