Thanks Jon,

Why those were, in fact, birds I was drawing. When I draw for inlays it works well to draw large and then shrink the drawing to fit. It gives you cleaner, finer and more precise lines to follow with the saw. These birds were for the Magpie Penelope crossover I made last winter with the "Tree".
Here's a couple pics of the drawing sized and worked;

I'm very proud of how that guitar worked out. So yeah I draw birds, flourishes, I'm currently trying to work out an olive wreath for a rosette.
