Well, I finally finished my marquetry saw. This was built with scraps laying around the shop and about $35.00 in hardware. The saw is made up of primarily a 12” drawer slide and a 5’ piece of brake line tubing. John Eifler from www.wood-veneers.com/j-home.htm has a great book on how to build this saw. It uses the double bevel method and the saw is set at a 12 degree angle. John also has a great book on how to do marquetry with this saw. It is so easy to use that I had very little, well ok I did need a couple of hints, but I very little trouble on my very first project.
I want to say thanks to Bill Kimbell (www.figured-veneers.com) for directing me to John and Dave Kisker and a great group of people in Louisville Colorado. They have been a great help in my effort to get into marquetry. A special thanks to Dave Kisker who took saturday mornings to help me get started.
Check out some of their work. They all have built and use this same saw and method. They are incredible.
