Wood Inlay:
Pieces of wood the same thickness are specially cut to shape so they fit together in a design without gaps. The pieces are sanded flat, giving a mosaic-like effect.
Wood Intarsia:
Pieces of wood are cut to shape so that they fit together without gaps. The pieces are shaped and carved to give dimension to the picture, and usually attached to a backer board.
Generally, no dyes or paints are used to add color. The designs rely on the natural grain and colors of the different wood species
