Here is a small marquetry saw I use all the time. Just thought someone out there might be interested. The throat is 12 inches and for bigger projects such as the bird tray, I made a table extension and a 30 inch saw which are both added to the saw you see here. In 5 minutes the conversion is done. The saw is mounted at 12 degrees to the table. It is operated manually by moving it up and down by a small wood knob situated along the lower arm under the work table. In other words this saw is basically just like holding a fret saw at 12 degrees. All it does is assure you that you are always at the constant angle.This allows you to do double layered marquetry. I am not very good at instructing so I hope this is clear enough to make sense. For more information here is The Marquetry Society of Canada web site of which I am a member. For more info on the saw look under the title (Gadgets and Tools). I hope this posting will encourage some of you to maybe venture into the veneer world and add a little bit of extra to some your projects.
It is also a great way to do woodwork on the road, camping, in your RV, condo, apartment. Well you get the drift.
Click on the link below. It is a You Tube video posted by (woodenwizard) of L J showing not only the beautiful saw he created but also it’s function and use. Excellent video. The posting is very much appreciated.
