A Foundation CoursePaperback - 2006
Requiring no expensive machinery, veneering offers woodworkers tremendous opportunities for creativity--and for using woods that may be rare, expensive, or structurally weak in their solid form. With this revised version of a classic guide--which includes a brand-new section on marquetry--woodworkers can learn all the basics, from terminology to materials, tools to techniques. There's detailed instruction on substrates and bonding; preparing the wood; cutting, coloring, and strengthening the veneer; and various methods of finishing and polishing for long-lasting beauty. The exquisite projects range from boxes to a blanket chest, from a kidney-shaped desk to a round dining table. Like having a master craftsman close by, this unique course will help take woodworking skills to new heights.
