Inlay is a wonderful way to create flowers, scenes, figures, and other intricate and colorful designs on wood objects--and a great opportunity to work with small quantities of rare and costly woods (also precious metals, leather, mother-of-pearl, and other materials). Today, since veneers and marquetry have come to substitute for inlay, this book helps to carry on the tradition of an almost forgotten art, and shows modern craftspeople how to use it to make plain objects special. Through detailed instructions, diagrams, and photographs, every step in the inlay process unfolds, including a special section on finishing. The spectacular projects feature everything from a pretty floral tray to Christmas ornaments, from a bookstand to a set of nested bowls--even jewelry!
Featuring inspirational pieces by some of today's premier inlay artists, plus concise how-to instructions and illustrations, this book serves as an unsurpassed creative and technical advisor on the dazzling art of inlay. This edition includes expanded coverage of techniques and design plus many full-color photos.
More than 470 color photos bring in-depth detail to this comprehensive look at the almost forgotten decorative art of leather inlay and overlay.

These skills have historically been passed along orally, and the book begins with a brief introduction of the cowboy boot, since thisis the discipline that s become a repository for the art of leatherinlay and overlay. Learn what these decorative methods can bring to your work with details on the tools and machinery needed, and clear explanations of the techniques. Also covered are the history of leather inlay and overlay, choosing the best leather, how to pattern and create leather art, and basic sewingmachine maintenance. The book finishes with anillustrated, step-by-step guide to three leather projects."

(Book). For more than 30 years, Grit Laskin has been building guitars, and his striking inlay work places his instruments in a class all their own. He is credited with single-handedly taking the ages-old tradition of musical instrument inlay from its purely decorative roots into an art form, a means of expression. In his hands, shell, stone, legal ivory and metal emerge as the palette of a re-invented medium. A sumptuous, full-color-throughout, coffee-table quality tome, this is the first book to document the breadth of his work and the techniques he has devised. Grit Laskin is the first and only musical instrument maker to receive Canada's prestigious Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence. The Museum of Civilization, Canada's equivalent to the Smithsonian, has four Laskin guitars in its permanent collection. Includes an essay on the history of inlay by Chuck Erickson. Photography by Brian Pickell. "(Grit's) work is more than adornment it's mind-blowingly interesting." Bob Taylor, Taylor Guitars
