     Inlay uses natural and/or man-made materials to add colorful accents or patterns to turned wood pieces.  Natural materials that can be used in inlay include the minerals calcite, malachite, turquoise, lapis and chrysocolla.  Items such as abalone, coral and paua shell can also be used.  Man-made materials such as Corian, Inlace, resin and metal dust can be used to produce colors not readily available in natural materials.  These materials are placed in natural voids in the wood or in grooves cut into the wood and then sanded smooth to produce unique results.
