What can I say, the inlay is 1/16" satinwood. The inlay is set about 1/2" from the edge of all the pieces. For an example the buffet is 2ft D by 5ft L by 3ft H. The top has a 1/16" satinwood line 1/2" in from the edge allthe way around. Their are 5 drawers each drawer front has a 1/16" line 1/2" infrom the edge all the way around.
Basicly all of the surfaces have been inlayed with a 1/16" line 1/2" in from the edge.
I just realised why you asked for more information. My first post was in INTRODUCTIONS, you only saw the second post. Let me start over.
Hi I'm Pete.
I live in South Carolina now but have traveled most of the world.
I worked with wood as a hobby for about 45yrs. I've done almost every thing from making some furniture to building a house.
I inharited a mohgany dinning room set with satinwood inlay.
I'm starting to restore it and need to repair the inlay. Some of it is lifting some is missing. About 25% of the inlay needs work. I've just never done any inlay work and all the information I can find deals with new work.
This dinning roomset as made in 1915/17 so I'm a little timmid.
How do I procide, Do I remove all the inlay or just the bad part?
How do I remove the inlay and what glue do I use to put it back?
