    Another way to fill those small gaps is to mix sawdust (powder from orbital sander) with sanding sealer and rub it in and let dry and sand off the excess. This has the advantage of : if you miss sanding some of it off it will not show up when you finish it, like glue will.

    A little glue rubbed into the gaps and then sand the piece flat( while the glue is still wet). The sawdust will get sucked into the glue and the gap won't be as noticable. I think cutting the veins at the same time as the inlay in this case is fine.

    SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

    Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...
