Introduction To Portable Power Tools
Layers and layers...
In this class we will use several different species of wood veneers to create a geometric pattern (parquetry) and an image (marquetry). We will utilize a scroll saw to stack cut the veneers, assemble the veneers into patterns and images, and then glue them on to backing boards. The class will be designed to give participants a hands on introduction to the basics of working with veneers - we will talk briefly about veneers, discuss ways to cut it and options for affordable vacuum presses.
***Please be aware, we will have a brief follow up meeting to take projects out of the vacuum press, do final sanding and seal the project. We can agree as a class on a follow up session or meet individually at our convenience.***
