Topic tags/keywords: marquetry veneer patch pad

I am wondering if anybody has tried the PatchPad Technique for Marquetry ?

David from B&B Rare Woods told me about it.

The only info I could find is this:

If anybody has other links or places to find more info I would appreciate it.

Looks like you’re essentially doing this style here that shipwright talks about:

I agree, it looks like what Pierre Ramond refers to in his books as the “Painting in Wood” technique. It was used extensively in French marquetry a couple of hundred years ago. It is tricky to get all the pieces in the right place and it renders only one copy but it conserves expensive veneer and is much easier to cut than piece by piece.
(I can’t believe she’s using a belt sander with 120 grit on the assembled marquetry … :-0 she is a lot braver than I am.)

Yeah, I don’t like using my ROS very much on my stuff. Can’t say I’d ever use a belt sander.

Have your say...
