Back in the workshop for dot inlays
Following the advice of my instructor, I drilled 0.1mm deeper than the thickness of the dots (1.6mm). I then squirted in a bit of CA, waited a few moments then tapped the dots in with a small hammer, leaving them very slightly proud - just enough to feel, but probably less than a hair's width. That was enough to give a little squeeze out. They ended up a nice snug fit, so when the glue had dried I dressed them to the level of the fretboard.
Next week is the 12th fret monogram inlay that I've been procrastinating about
