About Bone Inlay Furniture
Bone inlay furniture is a type of furniture that is created by carving designs into the surface of a block of wood. The design is usually carved out so that it can be filled with pieces of bone, ivory, or mother-of-pearl to create intricate patterns and textures on the surface. Bone inlay furniture is a type of art that has been around for centuries. It’s usually made from wood with pieces of bone or ivory set into it to create an intricate design.

How is Bone Inlay Furniture made?
Have you ever wondered how bone inlay furniture is made? Bone inlay furniture has been around for centuries, and it was first used as a way to create intricate designs on doors, cabinets, and other pieces of furniture. The process starts with designing the desired design or motif onto paper. Once the design is finalized, it’s transferred into a wooden board called a “pattern.”
This would then be cut out by hand using a special set of knives that are designed specifically for this purpose. Next, holes would be drilled at specific points along the edges of the pattern to allow for stringing together different layers of wood veneer to form one solid piece that will eventually become part of your beautiful new piece of bone inlay furniture!
