String Inlay Tools - Woodworking
 String Inlay Tools
 String inlay is created by cutting a narrow groove into a surface and inserting a thin strip of contrasting material called “string”. It is used to embellish and enhance simple, clean lines by drawing the eye along the edge of a surface. Though the string may appear delicate, it is durable when glued into a groove because it is supported by the material around it. Besides wood veneer, metal wire, thin plastic or even dyed epoxy can be used to fill the groove. The process is surprisingly simple, and with the right tools it is an easy skill to master.
