Always always after!

Your cuts in some cases may not even go a 10th of a mm deep.

Engraving is the very last thing you'll do to the inlays.

Sometimes I will re-sand a very very slight bit with 400 grit, but that will most times add dust to the lines.

I have been using a stearate filler lately for my engraving, not the inks and glues I used to.

I have also been working on a piece which has been the most challenging for me to engrave to date. Pics is a week or so, most likely longer.


PS- don't think good engraving happens fast.

Use extremely light strokes and go slightly deeper each time. The graver should move like a snail over a stone.
