11: Freboard inlays

Not much to say here, followed some instructions I found online and used a dremel. It came out pretty rough so there is a lot of CA glue filling around the ixthus inlay. Hopefully it doesn't show after it's got a finish on it.

The pictures are from just after sanding down to 600 grit. The purple heart will change color considerably over the next few days.
