  1. Projects a set of marquetry coasters any one can make

    Here is a set of coasters I made as a Christmas present for my daughter. The marquetry was done with commercial 1/40" veneer and was all cut simultaneously on a scroll saw using the "PAD" method. Marquetry is glued to a base of Jatoba, with the edges routed with 1/4" roundover to expose the...

    Hokusai's "Great Wave" is probably one of the most famous woodblock prints of the early 19th century. Thought I would give it a try in marquetry. I used the double bevel technique and thicker (3/32") veneers-primarily white sycamore, ipe, some elm and maple. The thicker, hand bandsawn...
