Topic tags/keywords: inlay marquetry

I was contemplating starting a blog, or as a Graphic Design project creating a pdf document about inlay techniques. After I went on-line to sniff out what I could find on the subject, I found so much available for free or in readily available books, that there is little I could add.

There is a really comprehensive source of free information based on classes given by the Chicago Park District in 1937. as well as many links about intarsia and other wood arts at

Between that and Doug Stowe’s Book Creating Beautiful Boxes with Inlay Techniques


Zachary Taylor’s Marquetry and Inlay Handbook

there isn’t much to be added to the data base by my efforts. Something I haven’t seen but long lusted after is Silas Kopf’s DVD on Marquetry or

there is also this master’s work to view

-- "Bordnerizing" perfectly good lumber for over a decade.

If you like marquetry I know that there is still at least one slot open in Paul Schurch’s class in Conyers GA. Begins May 29 goes to June 5.
If interested contact Don Russell

Course is $600 plus $40 for materials.

I’ve taken a number of woodworking courses and I rate this as the best. Even I can be a marquetrarian. If you look at my projects you can see what I learned in a week.

Have your say...
