Have you ever found a piece that you really like, but not to sure about the inlay? Don't overlook it! You can easily cover it up with a few coats of wood filler.
Here is an example a 2 pieces were the clients were looking for a very modern look on a very "girly" design and I knew the inlay was not going to go with the look they were going for.
I only took a picture of the first coat of wood filler. You will need at least 2 coats, letting dry and sanding between each coat to completely camoflage the inlay.
Here are the two pieces after being painted. Not rocket science, but something simple and easily forgotten about.
