Inlaying the handles

The layout began by screwing the handles to the surface of the wood for scribing with the utility knife.

After scribing the area immediately behind the brass was routed out to the thickness of the brass plus a sixteenth of an inch. Material below the handle was removed by a forstner bit, which left an unpleasant dimple in the final result. I'll need to borrow a goose neck gouge to clean up the surface later in the week.
