While it's been around for centuries, the craft of marquetry - the use of veneers and inlay to embellish a woodworking project or to create a beautiful image -- is as popular and relevant as ever. During today's tighter economic and environmentally conscious times, veneers offer a rich, but inexpensive, option for creating stunning works while preserving precious forests. Veneer is also extremely easy to work with and requires nothing more than a simple scroll or hand-held fret saw. Best of all, working with marquetry is extremely safe and requires no dedicated workshop; a garage, kitchen, or any other small space works fine. Basic Marquetry and Beyond is for the enthusiastic woodworker, crafter, or maker who is ready to explore this fascinating process. With over twenty projects and the expert guidance of two of today's top marquetry experts, Ken Horner and David Pike, Basic Marquetry and Beyond provides everything needed to master veneer and inlays while designing pictures and making projects such as boxes, coasters, platters, and bowls truly beautiful and unique. With over 250 photos, full-size patterns, and straight-forward instructions, Basic Marquetry and Beyond takes the reader step-by-step through each project rendering what might appear complicated as a very simple task. Most important, Basic Marquetry and Beyond makes understanding patterns easy while taking all the guesswork out of the selecting veneers. By the end of Basic Marquetry and Beyond, any beginner will feel like a seasoned pro while the advanced crowd will now doubt discover new ideas and techniques for their marquetry skill-set. Basic Marquetry and Beyond is a must-have reference for all woodworkers, crafters, and makers who want to create original art or inexpensively and beautifully embellish their finished projects.… (more)
