Open this book and master furniture craftsman Craig Vandall Stevens takes you from novice to advanced woodworker with this illustrated guide to marquetry. Marquetry is a technique where different colors of wood veneers are carefully cut to fit precisely together, forming a single sheet of veneer.
Explore your creative potential and learn the essential elements of marquetry: using a fret saw, sawing your own veneers from solid wood planks, the tools and materials required for marquetry, choosing wood, design, shading with hot sand, and applying a shellac finish. Finally, follow Stevens as he demonstrates making a beautiful, simple box with a marquetry top.
