Ever since I saw some of Paul’s (ShipWright) marquetry examples, I have been dwelling on them. Artistry, skill craftsmanship. Dwelling on them – yes. Thinking I could possibly do it – NO.
Then, I caught an Episode of woodcarvers. A young lady was doing some marquetry. I’m not saying it looked simple or easy to do. It just looked like something I’d like to try my hand at. Some of the exotic mystery was removed.
I have a few questions:
What is a good glue for joining the veneer figures?
I’m guessing tightbond 2 for the glue.
Thank you all so much for any help you can give me.
BTW, I used a $10 coupon at woodcraft and got a variety pack of veneer. 20 sq feet for 21.50 + tax. Nice little variety. Hopefully it’s good enough for the beginner to cut his teeth on.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
