As regards the names of techniques and style, about the intricate and hard to say, because the history of marquetry elf.

2. complicated way the crop was small saw saw elements (natural or artificial) veneer of a uniform thickness that are like collages prepared in the motives and the beautiful pieces of furniture or interior design.
