Last September I had the pleasure of meeting W. Patrick Edwards of the American School Of French Marquetry. He was one of the featured speakers at the Woodworking in America conference held here in Kansas City. My interest has been in building fine boxes, and I have been wanting to involve marquetry in my projects, therefore I signed up for two of his sessions. The result of this meeting has gotten me involved in studying and building the French tool developed in the late 1600’s to cut marquetry: “the donkey” I guess, because one sits astride this machine to operate it.
This Chevalet is not different from those posted on Lumberjocks by other members, as it follows the plans drawn up by patrick and sold with his hardware kits. I will be posting more information on my blog, and for those who are members of the “Chevy Clubhouse” headed up by “Shipwright” I will be putting additional info there as well.
