Below are some ideas of inlays that can be used as hanging art. However, keep in mind that inlay can be used on just about any flat or slightly curved surface that is made from a material that can be routed with standard carbide bits. Things like furniture, kitchen cabinets, decorative boxes and even jewelry. Also as you look through this site keep in mind that if you see something that you like that is on a guitar or other object it is most likely something that could be inlayed into many other things. Look around and feel free to be inspired as to the almost limitless possibilities of my inlay work.

Harvey Leach  Custom Inlays and Guitars 

The above inlays are examples of what I have done in the past, any of these can be recreated and inlayed into whatever you choose. Custom inlays are very time consuming so understand that there will be a bit of a wait depending on the complexity and the amount of work that is ahead of you in the queue. I require a 1/3 deposit at the time you order and the balance prior to shipping. Pricing is based on materials and complexity. Please feel free to contact me with any pricing or availability questions you might have.


If you are like me and really don't want to wait for things I do have a few inlayed items listed below. These will also give you a general idea of what some non-guitar inlay items might cost.
