Inlay

Do you want custom inlay work done for your lutherie project or ready instrument? Using both hand tools and cnc.technology I can provide high quality inlay in many different materials, shapes and sizes.

I specialize in Inlaying using mainly cnc technogy, a method that assures very high precision and repeatability. For instance, If you want a larger batch of headplate logos or series of fretboard markers this method is less time consuming and more predictable than hand-tooling the inlays.

I can also provide hand cut and engraved inlay of your choice, I mostly hand cut larger one-off designs.

The materials i use differ widely. Most commonly used are different types of pearl, or pearl laminate. But I also use reconstituted stone, different types of plastics and polymers, and also softer metal alloys. Only your imagination sets the boundries, there are many materials out there that can be used for inlaying.

I have done inlay for both professional luthiers, amateurs and players just wanting to decorate their instruments. To get a price quote or if you want more info, just send me a message!
