Welcome to Small Wonder Music

Suppliers of Specialist Inlay Materials & Tools for Musical Instruments, Furniture, Jewellery, Antique Restoration and Craft Work in the United Kingdom and Europe.

What separates Small Wonder from other Inlay Suppliers is that we do Custom Work In House which provides the opportunity to Bench Test both Materials & Tools in the search for greater Innovation and Quality.

Examples of these materials in use and the various techniques used to create them - such as Engraving and Tinting - can be found in the Custom Work section. (Top Left - Home Page)

Please note that all the examples in the Custom Work Gallery have been hand cut & inlaid using exactly the same tools & materials offered for sale in the Webshop.
