Wood Appliques,Trim, Carvings
Wood appliques and wood carvings are often called gingerbreads. Wood appliques are glued and sometimes nailed to furniture, cabinets and desks as added decoration. (If you use contact cement to apply this trim you are less likely to have splits.) Embossed wood, onlays, wood appliques, wood carvings, call them what you like, but these are the same type wood carvings that have been used in the furniture and cabinetry trade for many many years.
