More Information on this Workshop

This workshop will not be about how to select a laser as much as how to use one to cut veneer. Although lasers are still pricy, it is amazing what can be done with one. Over the last 15 years, Marc has spent a lot of time developing techniques to scan a drawing and convert it into lines that the laser can read. Using a laser to cut veneer means that an image has to be programmed in ways that make marquetry sense—for example, deciding the depth of an image by separating the background from the packets and then making it all fit together in a logical sequence. The big challenge is how to cut any veneer (wrinkly or burly) with total accuracy and repeatability and without burning the edges. There will be a discussion of laser settings, handling veneers, arranging the packets, using contact paper, making the packets after they have been cut and reverse taping. These techniques are slightly different than what would typically be done when making traditional marquetry packets. Cutting veneer with a laser can be tricky, but Marc will show students ways to cut it accurately with great repeatability, as well as how to get perfect fits. PS: This is NOT a CorelDraw class.
