Custom Inlay Inlace; Project – Sailboat

An owner of a refurbished sailboat desired the finishing touch to bring his project to completion. Thus, I was commissioned to design, carve, and inlay inlace a visual image of the name of the boat, “ Humming Bird “, on  existing Teak doors.

What is Inlay Inlace?

Used primarily by artists, craftmen, and woodworkers, etc.., inlace is a brand of solid surface material quite similar to Corian. The Polylite clear casting resin, may be used as clear or mixed with a variety of colors and textures  ex. inlace nuggets, granules, metallic dusts, stones, flecks, metallic dyes, etc..

Note; because the main component is resin, after sealer or varnish is applied, the end product will be very durable, long lasting, retaining the vibrancy of colors.

The photo gallery below shows the progression of this task. Pay close attention to pic # 3 the    ‘undercutting ‘ carving which is done to secure the inlay by encouraging the inlay to  lock  into place.
