The ability to work with veneer is a skill well worth developing; it opens up a whole new world of design freedom. Walnut burl, mahogany crotch, Macassar ebony, and quilted maple are just a few of the countless woods available to the woodworker who can incorporate veneer into his or her work. This course will begin with the history of veneer and then move on to demonstrations of how to handle veneer and cut, tape, press, and sand the panel. From there, Marc will cover slip, book, four-way, and radial matching of veneer. After everyone has created some veneered panels, border work and inlay techniques will be covered, as well as edge details.

On the second day, students will be introduced to parquetry techniques and allowed to incorporate geometric shapes into their work. By the end of the weekend, each student will have pressed up many examples to take home and turn into a special piece of furniture or wall hanging. Veneer work is simple, creative and fun. If you've ever wanted to learn the craft of veneering, this would be the best place to start.
