Eyal, I have taken several veneer and marquetry classes at Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Franklin IN. I don’t think there is anything like a hands on experience that taking a class gives but I also have Marc Adams and Paul Schurch video’s both of which use a different approach. Marc’s process is a double bevel cutting method and Paul’s is a packet cutting method, both are excellent video’s. The Tiger chest was cut using a chevalet (of which I am a novice) in the classic style of cutting in a packet but cutting each piece separately. If you are interested in building or the use of a chevalet de marqueterie you need to Google search Patrick Edwards at the American School of French Marquetry or contact our own “Shipwright” who helped me with building mine,. I think you could definitely learn to do marquetry from a book or video. Good luck and hopefully we will see some of your endeavors hear on W.W.
