Marquetry is a technique in which different colors of wood veneers are carefully cut to fit precisely together in a design or image. During the class, students will learn the double-bevel method of marquetry. This highly accurate technique eliminates gaps around individual pieces of the marquetry picture. Marquetry can be incorporated in a variety of ways into furniture and other wood objects.
Greg will provide all materials and tools for this class. The class is handwork only and will not involve any machine use.
