Making marquetry with patience and lot of care
Intarsia means insertion in Arabic. It has been a popular decorative art element since antiquity and is still widely used today. In some cases, the wood inlay is artificially coloured; in the past, wood discoloured by fungi was used for this purpose. Nowadays, however, many people use various water and spirit stains. We prefer the natural stuff. The marquetry kits we offer are not surface-treated and can therefore be varnished as you wish.
A wide variety of marquetry
The Naturtrend Shop offers marquetry inlays UK in a variety of colours, all made of wood, so they are natural and timeless. Marquetry is no longer just an activity of the cabinetmaker's workshop, because with the right touch, attention, patience and loving care for wood inlay, anyone can say that refurbish furniture at home is not just a job, but a pleasure and a great way to relax. It's easier to make an inlaid dresser or table. Our online shop will help you do just that, with not only a wide selection of marquetry kits, but also affordable inlaid veneer prices to encourage you to make your designs a reality.
Our website also provides you with more advice on how to order a unique inlaid pattern and what to look out for when gluing and cutting the decorative strips.
Why is the marquetry fillet 0.6 mm thick?
The 0.6 mm thick veneer is the most common in Europe, so this is the most practical width to produce. If the veneer is thinner and you need to add the intarsias, there is no problem as you can sand the two materials together.
