Hummingbird inlay

Ready-made Inlays

Attention Wood-turners and Furniture makers!


If you want to make your work stand out from the crowd consider using our custom inlays. Supplied under protective film, with the back clean and ready to apply - simply stick them down with your preferred adhesive and polish as normal. If you wish the face side to be sealed with a cellulose-based sealer (to help prevent glue penetration) please specify with your order.

As used by Les Thorne - Good Woodworking, issue 269, August 2013.
