Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Router bit, carbide, 1/8" cut, 1/8&...The Invisible Line: When Craft Becomes Art

The Art of Inlay, Larry Robinson

SKU: BM20

 

by Larry Robinson
 
Internationally-known inlay artist Larry Robinson has written a beautifully illustrated book with over 100 color photos of amazingly intricate inlays, not only of Larry's exquisite work, but that of Steve Klein, Grit Laskin, Ren Ferguson, Richard Hoover, and several other fine inlay artists/guitar makers. There are many more photos, as well, in black and white. Larry covers everything one needs to know about inlay techniques and inspires anyone who opens the book to pick up a jeweler's saw and "V" block. Hints like "roll the handle by moving your fingers back and forth...the resulting cut will be smoother than if you turn your whole hand from the wrist," are common throughout the book. Larry's easy-going writing style makes this a very pleasant read. Revised/Expanded version, 128 pages, softbound.
