A complete and concise book on marquetry fills a long awaited need to students, hobbyists, furniture makers and furniture restorers. Written with beginners in mind, ten classic designs are included, with over 300 step-by-step coloured illustrations offered in the form of tutorials. Designs such as fans, shells, patera, compass rose, husk swags and modern floral work. Geometric parquetry including the chessboard, Louis Cube, basket weaves and the amazing chevron construction. Four furniture making projects include an 18th century oval gallery tray, a pier table mirrored to Thomas Chippendale's original, as well as a modern jewellery box and a delightful folding two-sided fire screen. Computer aided designs (CAD) accompany the furniture making projects.
