How to lie to your machine, but still be friends

Anytime you will be putting parts together, whether for artistic inlay or for interlocking machine components, you have to leave a little bit of space for things to work together.  In the case of inlay, you have to create enough space to allow the part to be inserted into the pocket without excessive force, and leave a wide enough gap between the pocket and the part to allow excess glue to squeeze out during final assembly.
