Inlay is a technique that inserts visually contrasting pieces of materials into a larger base object. The inlaid pieces sit perfectly flush in the depressions of the base material and therefore look like they’re part of the base. In the case of wood inlays, the contrast is often achieved by incorporating wood or veneers with different grain patterns or colours.
Historically, inlay was only done on upscale products and art pieces due to how labour intensive the process was. Even with modern tools, it is still quite a delicate process since wood is naturally prone to chipping. Much craftsmanship and precision are required in order to achieve perfection, and this is why inlaid items are usually perceived as more luxurious and artistic.
Wood Inlay Project Panels
We can help you add inlay to your own woodworking projects. If you are building a table or cabinet, wood inlay is an excellent way to jazz it up and give it a personal, artistic touch. You can choose how you want the inlay done, including the combination of shapes, wood and stain colours to make it truly yours. We will then make the inlaid project boards to the dimensions you need, ready to be used in your projects.
If you have an idea you’d like to bring to life, we can make custom wood products completely from scratch. Just tell us your idea and we’ll make it happen. You don’t have to limit your design to wood inlays either, engraving is also an option. Inlay is also something we can incorporate into our custom wood signs and game boards. There is no limit to what you can do, only your imagination.
