Editorial Reviews

"Marquetry" is the cutting and assembly of a variety of think woods (called veneers) to make a colorful pattern and showcase the beauty of wood. In Simple Marquetry, Mike Burton draws upon his more than forty years of experience and expertise to show the reader how to transform plan objects into esthetically impressive functional and decorative items with a series of easy-to-follow techniques. There is an extensive and basic "how-to" section for the novice, and one that does not require elaborate equipment or expensive setups. This is followed by fifteen projects ranging from a set of kitchen canisters embellished with rustic images to a striking contemporary design created by repeating geometric shapes. All projects include templates and detailed, step-by-step instructions which are augmented by photography. Simple Marquetry is ideal for the weekend hobbyist and a wonderful introduction to a specialized and enduringly beautiful craft.
