Marqutery School #1: First Class Starts Tomorrow


This is part 1 in a 4 part series: Marqutery School

My first marquetry course starts tomorrow morning. I’ve been preparing for a couple of weeks and I think I’m as prepared as I could be.

The classroom

The textbooks

The work areas

Glue making, packet assembly and mounting board materials

The packets for the first étude. They get a choice of colour combinations

Hammer veneering materials, even got outmy old glue pot as back up.

Wish me luck!

Thanks for looking
