Popular uses for inlays are on dressers, armoires, fancy boxes, table tops, and virtually every other woodworking project. This inlay is about 1/20th of an inch thick and comes paper-faced to hold pieces together until glued in place.
Applying inlays is really quite simple. The most popular way is to rout out a panel the exact size and shape, just a shade shallower than the inlay. Glue down with the clean of face side down. After the work has dried sufficiently, remove paper backing by wetting with water and sanding off. Now you're all ready for sealing and finishing.

I put the hummingbird inlay along with a large compass rose into a peninsula countertop. It came out nice. Could have used a little more thickness, though, for sanding. But that's partially my fault as I am a carpenter and should know better.

This is the second time that I have purchased this item. I have not seen it anywhere else. The quality of the artwork is great! Everyone that sees the finished product (recipe boxes) really likes it! I would buy the hummingbird inlays again!

I used your Hummingbird inlay on a Tea Caddy box and found it to be just as you said--very easy to use if you take your time and rout out for it. I also used an Xacto knife to cut the grain all the way around the area I was going to rout, so it made it much easier to keep a fine edge.
"Have been a return customer for a number of years, and a recent experience has really cemented that bond for me. After using my Rockler lighted magnifying lens for a few months, one of the wires from the battery pack came loose. When I contacted Customer Service to inquire about sending the unit back, they instead sent me a brand new one - no questions asked, no return expected, no charge whatsoever. This simple step - coupled with top quality, innovative products - ensured my repeat business more than any other advertising technique or gimmick could ever do.
Keep up the good work, Rockler!" -
