Extract from back cover of book:
Beautiful wood is precious and has to be used sparingly. Hence the art of veneering, in which rare woods are sliced or sawn into thin leaves and then glued onto a substructure of more common material. The allied art of marquetry consists of making pictures often to adorn elegant, veneered furniture from a palette of colorful wood veneers.
In this collection of 38 articles from Fine Woodworking magazine, skilled craftsmen explain how veneer is manufactured and how you can saw your own. They show you how to lay it using simple equipment and how to design furniture based on veneer panels. And they demonstrate the methods of marquetry, paying particular attention to shop-built saws for cutting the most intricate details.
Since it began publication in 1975, Fine Woodworking has written about practically every aspect of the craft. The "Fine Woodworking on..." series organizes many of the articles from the magazine's first ten years into individual volumes by subject. Each book in this series offers an in-depth look at a particular aspect of woodworking, from the perspective of skilled professional and dedicated amateur woodworkers.
