I made 2 Raven desks. The inlay on the first, which is probably the one to which you are referring, turned out fairly clean. The second shows the bleeding, but it's on a pull-out tray so less objectionable.
Yes, they are Fingermaker's joints. The lady who commissioned the piece liked the exposed joinery. The other corners have the same joints, glued as usual. For the loose ones I had to do some manual sanding to provide enough relief. I warned her that they may bind in humid summer weather. I'm almost finished a second copy of the jewellery box, I haven't decided on an inlay yet. Maybe a smaller raven?
