Turnery with Tin Inlays

Selecting the right wood, using natural indentations such as drying cracks or knots Turning...
Turnery with tin or tin alloy inlays will be produced using old, traditional techniques. Since the 17th century, tin inlays have adorned not only magnificent pieces of furniture, coats of arms and caskets, but also utensils such as bagpipes, rifle shafts and cutlery. The appealing material combination of precious woods and tin makes this technique ideal for all kinds of turnery.
