I like to explore other dimensions of woodworking with an eye on their application to woodturning.
The last turnedoutright project “Holy Water Font” used a simple “window method” of marquetry.
This project prompted me to learn more about Marquetry so I clicked over to SmartFlix and found a video on the subject.”Master Techniques of Marquetry” is a complete treatment of the subject.
In this video, Master Marqueteer (is that a word?) Silas Kloft takes the audience through centuries of the art.

Techniques for inlay, Marquetry, Parquetry, Boulle, double bevel and sand shading are included. Tools such as shop made fret-saw blades and the Chevalet were covered as was Piquage (copying) techniques.
I learned some techniques that I am sure I can apply to the surface of my wood turning’s, especially in application for cutting and assembling veneer objects.
Silas’s work is breathtakingly art-full and astonishingly precise. The the video is well organized and easy to understand. You can expect to see me try and apply some of these techniques in my upcoming projects.
