full-color photos throughout drawings 7 x 10 Easy-to-follow instructions for mastering the art Detailed, color photographs demonstrate each step Marquetry, the method used to create pictures from wood veneers, has changed little over the centuries, although the variety and availability of veneers have increased and cutting techniques have improved. Complete step-by-step photographs and illustrations guide craftpersons of all skill levels through the entire marquetry processfrom selecting the picture to making a border, mounting the picture, and finishing it. Separate sections cover the necessary tools and materials, the skills required, and the specific types of wood that can be used. And for woodworkers who master the basics, the book shows how to enhance veneers through parquetry, cutting veneers into geometric patterns; sand shading, using sand to change the color tone of wood; pyrography, using a pen to burn shapes on to a veneer; and cutting slivers, inserting thin strips of wood into background veneers. David Hume is a marquetry and ceramic designer from Scarborough in Yorkshire, England. He runs his own business and teaches in the art department of the Yorkshire Coast College.
