Looking for ideas to insert ebony into redheart
Not that the species matter, I'm really looking for ideas to make a small odd shaped piece of wood and fir it into a larger piece of wood.
I'm looking to make a peppermill like the one in the attached drawing. I want to make the little doors by putting a piece of ebony into the sections that show the door shaped outline. They will need to go fairly deep into the unturned square piece so they don't get turned out when I do the turning. Also, note that the pieces are pretty small, so I'm not quite sure how to fabricate them. Also not sure how to cut the hole they'll go into to ensure a clean fit. Was thinking of a forstner bit and a mortise cutter, but I'm very much up for better suggestions
