Nice work. How are you cutting your marquetry?

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

I learned how to do Italian Marquetry from Paul Schurch at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking near Indianapolis. I took a couple of classes at the school that completely changed how I work wood. The first was a general introduction to working with veneer and later a class on Marquetry. Paul is an amazing teacher and offers DVDs on his web site that are extremely informative.
