These chromatic effects combine the prestige of natural wood with the hand labor of skilled craftspeople for a truly unique result. The typical shading intricacy of the design is achieved with the aid of red-hot sanding.This operation, which must be executed with immense care, gives warm and elegant nuances to the beautiful tones of the wood itself. The wood passes through stages of smoothing and polishing to yield an elegant matte finish. These phases involve manual work with endless grain variations, such that essentially no two pieces are alike, which is an important feature of Sorrento's inlaid woodwork.
