Location: San Diego, California

Over 40 years in business (same location) with focus on pre industrial restoration and museum conservation of antique furniture made in Europe or America before 1850. I have never owned a table saw or router and do not use power tools. I prefer to work at the bench (which I made) with period antique wood tools. I believe that "Form Follows Process." I am a proud member of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers. I studied under Dr. Pierre Ramond at the ecole Boulle, in Paris.

Fantastic project. I was sent this post and decided to join so that I could follow what you guys are doing. I have done marquetry for over 40 years and, if you want to see this tool in action, locate a copy of Roy Underhill’s show from 2008 where I demonstrated how it works.

If you want lessons, I operate a school, the American School of French Marquetry, in San Diego, where you can try out the French method.

I am amazed that you can build one in 40 hours with less than $100 invested. Congratulations!

LOL One can’t make a bold post and not get noticed on this site.. LOL… Great blog on your website. A base knowledge and experience like yours is admirable. :)

I don’t know if this will work, but here is a photo of my last project: Treasure Box made with sawn veneers using the Painting in Wood method from 1680.
