Hard to get the cuts to line up perfectly but I think I figured it out now.

Have to make the cut to remove the same width as the inlay.

Bingo. I figured that out after making the same mistake 3 times.

You can figure it out pretty easy from videos or books but if you spent a day with a rodbuilder (ducktrickster or jchief) it would really shorten the learning curve.

I'm lucky to have three rodbuilding vendors within 20 minutes of my home. To get started it really helps to be able to visit a vendor and see what you need vs. what you think you need.

Lance at Swampland in Houma is a great guy and would be able to get you going.

After spending time with lance and at FTU in Houston, I couldn't see myself ordering all the components online - that's too much of a guessing game before knowing exactly where the components will line up on the blank, and which blank you are using along with OD dims at those points along the blank.

A fit up on site by an experienced builder is priceless for a beginner...

Just picked up materials for 2 more, I've only done the one to date.

Haven't hit Houma in a bit, but have been in Houston so I got everything at FTU. Got some cork split grips with darker cork trim on them, can't wait to get that one together.
