1. You might want to do your own inlay strips.
    Roubo plate 289 shows a “tire-filet” (thicknessing jig, fig. 3, 4 &5):
    , page 831.
    The jig is clamped in the vise and you pull the strip with one hand while pushing (“as much as needed”) on the lever with the other hand. Repeat until the lever is bottoming and the iron doesn’t take anything more. Then flip the strip end for end to make the other end.
    Rough strips might be done with a slitter or a cutting gauge in straight grained wood.
