Inlay in America today often adorns guitars, banjos, mandolins and other musical instruments, as well as furniture, fine woodwork, jewelry, wall hangings, and various objets d’art. Designs range from simple monograms, vignettes or patterns, to elaborate scenes of nature, history, or fantasy. This book is a spectacular showcase of some of the finest examples of this art, and an inside look at how to create it.
The author tells you about the tools and techniques used to transform these elements into inlay. He describes in detail every step of the process and every aspect of the art – from drawing the initial design to touching up the finished object. And you’ll get plenty of tips and tricks along the way.
