The term inlay refers to a technique where depressions are cut into a carcass to receive sections of a contrasting material. In our furniture the carcass is wood veneer and the contrasting material is Brass.
Very thin strips of the Brass are glued together and then, with a fine saw, are cut into intricate patterns, the most popular of which are scrolls, Arabesque and geometric designs. These sections are then skilfully set into the wood.
The final process is cleaning down with scrapers, sand paper and abrasive powders to achieve the perfect finish.
