Butterfly inlays are a lot of fun for me to work on. They aren’t as difficult as some of the more intricate designs. The first butterfly I made looked like something out of a third grade coloring book. The lines were crooked and lopsided and it surprised me that it even resembled a butterfly. But if you looked real close you could make it out!
