What You Will Need:

Plunge Router - A router with a plunge base is the best way to cut out the inlay pieces without making unwanted gouges when trying to make an accurate plunge into your project wood.

Bandsaw - Many of our Art Design Stencils require you to use the bandsaw with a resaw technique to prevent the breaking of the Inlay pieces. If you are using thick lumber to save $ than it is a must.

1/8" Router Inlay Kit - Every MLIS we have made so far has required the use of this 1/8" inlay kit w/ .2" bushing depth to execute the design. The Whiteside 9500 kit below works great. Use the 1/4" 9501 kit for faster pocket clear out only.

Positioning Plates - These plates hold your templates in place throughout the duration of the inlay creation process. They also ensure you are floating across a level surface with your router to prevent fall-off damage to your MLIS while cutting out the pockets.

Double Sided Tape- Use the clear to hold down your stencils to your project wood and grab the white to hold your wood to your table to prevent plates from moving. 

...and of course a
Multiple Layer Inlay Stencil

Seemingly complex inlay designs made easy with these layered inlay templates.
