I was hoping to use this for fretboard inlay work - much like abalam. I always prefer to use natural shell, but finding larger, thicker pieces of Paua shell is difficult. I saw this was available at .08" thick and decided to try it. The material seems to be made up of three pieces - a .04" of black backing material, .01" of shell veneer and .03" of clear acrylic. It looks really nice but not useable for my application. Shipping and customer service is top notch.
