Remove the tape by moistening it with a sponge. Wait a minute or two, then scrape off the tape using a dull putty knife.
Adjust the height of a top-bearing flush-trim router bit. Use scrap pieces, plus a couple of playing cards, to represent the thickness of the template, shim and inlay.
Clamp the template to the workpiece and rout a recess for the inlay. Using this bit, the recess will be exactly the same size as the template's window.
Sand the inlay flush with the surrounding wood. Use 220 grit paper wrapped around a cork-backed block.
