There is a reason why handle / wood inlay combination information is difficult to find.  It takes knowledge and experience to fine tune the methodology into a system that works and is durable.  And when this system is greased by practice and repetition (and a few blunders and screw ups) the results are quite stunning.  Well, these results are worth more, IMO, when there is less competition offering them.  So you're not likely to acquire information spoon fed to you.  You're going to have to experiment with different techniques (there are plenty of these kinds of videos) and then assemble them using ideas on your own and hopefully conclude with the end results you hoped to achieve.  Not trying to be a jerk, but merely wishing to encourage you to do the research and homework, understand the concepts surrounding safe turning, brainstorm procedural concepts on your own and go for it.  It took a while before I came up with the steps I use to get the results I was after and that my clients demand and are willing to pay to acquire.  However, there are a dozen (in my mind) more talented, more gifted and way more artistic masters of the "wood lathe handle turners club" than me.  And, this keeps me driven to achieve a higher standard of product.  These hours upon hours of learning and technique become guarded secrets among the elite builders and (as I have learned) and getting it out of them is like dental work on a shark!   So good luck!  You can draw conclusions on where I'm going with this thought...
