How do you remove the current inlays?

Recommended Posts

Drilling them out is the easiest.

I use (for dots) a flush/flat end dremmel carbid bit. It takes them out nice and smooth, and leaves an even flat surface left afterwards.

As for the new inlays, just make sure they cover the gaps of the old ones. Then there is no problem.

If you have any space around the old empty route, then you will need to find pieces of wood to match, and cut and inlay them along with the new inlays, to fill the space. Don't use wood filler. Take the time and do it right. You'll be happy you did. Obviously this works best in ebony, a little lesser so in rosewood, least in maple.
