Marquetry in Arabic means insertion. It has been known since ancient times and has been a popular branch of decorative art ever since, and as such, it has its tricks. In some cases, the inserted wood is artificially coloured; in the past, trees discoloured by fungi were preferred for such purposes. Nowadays, various aqueous and alcoholic paints are used for this purpose. The wood inlay designs we offer is not surface-treated, it can be varnished as desired.

The prefabricated marquetry kits are well suited for veneering. The most typical use is the inlaid framing of a veneered surface. The thickness of the marquetry inlay is 0.6 mm, the same as the thickness of the most commonly used veneers, so it can be inserted into the veneer without any difficulty during the making of marquetry inlay. The handling of the wood inlay strips is not different from the handling of the veneer, care must be taken that it is more vulnerable due to its small width.

What you need to pay close attention to?

However, some things deserve special attention, such as glueing wood inlay strips. Most types of adhesives used in the wood industry can be used to bond marquetry. Iron can help to dry the glue faster. Be careful not to choose too high a temperature, otherwise, the veneer will discolour.
