Woodworkers will learn how veneer is
manufactured and how to choose glue,
adhesives, and substrates; band-saw
their own veneers; cut, match, and tape
veneer panels; accomplish complete
four-way matches; and other procedural
skills. These techniques are demonstrated
through a series of step-by-step exercises
that culminate in four finished projects:
a dining room table, a wall mirror with shelf,
a marquerty picture, and a parquetry design.
Complete with a troubleshooting section for
repairs and problems and featuring
contemporary methods and materials, such
as hammer veneering with PVA glue and
vacuum pressing of flat and curved panels,
this reference is the most inclusive resource
for working with veneer and inlay designs.
"This is the best veneering book ever!!"
