Marquetry Demonstration this weekend – Artisans Studio Tour

Have you ever wondered how Dave makes all the veneered designs in his shop? Marquetry is a traditional technique dating back to the early 16th century of using cut wood veneer to create a design, and it can be as simple as a bookmatched burl veneer applied to a panel, or as complex as thousands of individually sand-shaded pieces carefully assembled to form a work of art.

Dave will be giving a demonstration of how he would assemble a floral marquetry design as part of the Artisan’s Studio Tour – plan to stop by around 10:30am or 4:pm on either day if you’re interested in watching!
