I have been involved in scroll sawing for several years now and have always been interested in marquetry. Is there anyone in Colorado specifically in the Denver area that wouldn’t mind sharing their skills. Also does anyone recommend any books, videos etc that would be helpful. However, I learn best by watching others perform.

I took Paul’s course. Those books are not supposed to be some of the best, they are some of the best.

Hi John,
Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood offers a course in marquetry and veneering.
There is also a marquetry group that meets in Louisville about every other Sat. form 8:30am to noon.
It’s not only free but they supply free veneer and instruction + inspiration and coffee.
