I had a neighbor who built furniture. He made a piece with this great set of doors filled with lines and ribbons of color. I asked him how did you make all this inlay? He said, Oh that’s not inlay, it’s paint. Oh, I replied.
Don’t get me wrong, paint is wonderful. But if you make furniture and you get a chance to put in some inlay, don’t hesitate. Take the plunge, learn to cut inlay and ground. It’s more fun that laying down ribbons of masking tape, I can tell you that.
