Subject: General Help : Celtic Inlays
From: JulieF
Date: 09 Jul 00 - 09:46 AM

My daughter is making some sort of box for her Tin Whistles as part of her GCSE Technology. Her teacher has suggested some sort of celtic inlay as a decoration for the top of the box. Does anyone know a good source for these inlays either by Mail /Internet or Somewhere between Sheffield /Aberdeen and Shetland ( We could pick it up on holiday in about a month)

Thanks for any help.

All the best

Julie

Do you have facilities to open JPEGS because I could scan you something if you like.....

If not, go to your library reference section and ask for celtic design/knotwork. There are plenty of them around. Also, the British Museum do some good source books.

Not sure, but I think we have a little confusion here. Julie is looking for "inlays" to purchase. I think she has confused "inlay" with "inter-lace" or knot work. Julie, most folks use some kind of paint rather than a true inlay which involved carving a channel and inlaying something different into it (such as a different color of wood or mother of pearl)

There are lots of internet sites and design books that have patterns you can use. The real trick is not going blind when trying to follow a ribbon to color it in.

there ARE commercial 'inlay strips' that one simply puts into a routed groove in a box top...perhaps a woodworking store can direct you...but even these requite 'some' help or ability with a saw or router to fit properly...

Thanks for the help. It is specifically inlays that we are looking for as Cat need to show a certain amount of skill in woodworking.

Thanks again.

Sorry then, Julie for my mix-up. I have known lots of people that called interlace "inlay" when it is not. Musicmakers Kits, located here has some inlays and rosettes you might be interested in.

Thanks again to all

You can also look out for Aidan Meehan's books as a basis for Celtic Artwork. These are available from most good bookshops. You will also find him on the net if you search on his name
