Keegan Posted December 4, 2008 Report Share Posted December 4, 2008 So I have this tele control plate I want to inlay instead of having it rest on top of the guitar. I'm thinking first I need to make a template the exact size of the control plate, then follow that for a shallow pass the thickness of the plate with a ball bearing bit, then use the brass inlay bushing set I have for cutting the control cavity. This will allow me to use the same template for both parts of the process. I have a couple questions though: 1. How much width do I need to leave in there for controls? Is an inch enough? This would give me 1/8" sides for the plate to rest on. 2. How much wood should I leave around the screw holes? 3. How deep? Is 1/4" enough wood to leave below the rout?
