Art and craft <br />Wooden inlay work is well flourished in Hosiarpur district of Punjab. After the partition of India, Hindu family practised it. <br />
Inlay work<br /><ul><li>Hoshiarpur in Punjab specializes in wood inlay. Here mostly seesham wood is used, occasionally black wood, both as ground, and sometimes with ivory inlay.
Originally only ivory pieces were used but now due to its scarcity and very high cost, substitutes such as old piano keys, even badla (zinc) are utilized for the inlay work. Of late plastic is also being widely used for this purpose.
Examples of inlay articles produced in this region are table tops, teapots, trays, table legs, screens, bowls, cigarette cases and chessboards.
The designs are largely of the traditional Moghul variety with emphasis on flora, fauna and geometrical patterns.</li></li></ul><li>
Basic material used in inlay work<br /><ul><li>Wood. (redwood and mahogany used in this example)
Paint brush.(medium) </li></li></ul><li>Basic steps involved in process of inlay work<br /><ul><li>Make a pattern. We will have to make a pattern first before we go cutting wood. We can do this by tracing the pattern on the wood. By doing so, we can cut it more efficiently in accordance to our plan.
Cut the wood strips. After doing this, we can now cut the narrow wood strips. So that we will not have a hard time, we can get a table saw to do this. </li></li></ul><li>Drill grooves into the wood.<br /> Small objects that we will have to work on require a hand wood carving v-chisel so that we can make the grooves.<br /> We might want to cut the grooves wider to create some allowance.<br />One-thirty-second to one-sixteenth of an inch in allowance would do fine.<br /> <br /><ul><li> A plunge router, provided it has a straight bit, can drill hollow grooves fit for the inlay.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Smooth out the grooves. Smooth out the grooves of the inlay with a use of a sandpaper to create thinner grooves. After this is set, we will have to put wood glue to the thin woods back. We should also put glue on the grooves.
Stick the pieces of wood together. Stick them together by pressing it down evenly with your fingers. We can hammer it down so that it really sticks.
Wipe the glue off. With a damp cloth, wipe any excess glue off the top.
Leave the woodwork to dry. We will have to leave the woodwork for at least 12 hours. Afterwards, you can finish this with sandpaper.</li></li></ul><li>craftsman info<br />Your good name: Baldev Krishna. <br />Sex: male. <br />Age: 62. <br />D.O.B:1948.<br />When you started working in this craft: 1964.<br />Educational qualification: 8th STD.<br />Craft passing from generation to generation: yes.<br />Is the entire family engaged in this craft: yes.<br />First work:” Sitting Posture of GAUTAM BUDDHA”<br />Per day income: 150.<br />Any help or patronage from government or any NGO: no.<br />
