« Part 1: Cutting long, perfect, straight lines in Marquetry Part 2 of Marquetry……a gaming table of pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell…….various techniques series no next part

Just completed and placed an instructional video on YouTube. It is on making packets of metal for cutting. You can search YouTube for Marquetry Using Metals to see it. The making of packets of metal sheets is very similar to those of wood veneers; however, there are a few precautions and alterations that make it important to differentiate. The video layers pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell——-all about 22Ga. thick. I also submitted an article on this subject but in more detail with photos. I will come out in the next publication of The American Marquetarian. Feel free to ask any questions…… Ken Stover

Here are some photos of some progress of the project.
