"Taylor offers a wealth of information about cutting and piecing together veneers and describes the techniques for using either hand or power tools. The second half shows readers how to inlay decorative elements into wood. Taylor is first-rate in making sense of a some-what unforgiving technique. Excellent."-- Library Journal

Exquisite designs, exotic woods, and skills anyone can master! With marquetry (attaching a design to a wood surface), or inlay (inserting small pieces of wood into the grain) even the simplest objects can become artistic and sophisticated pieces. Here's the best, most beautifully illustrated guide for learning a wonderful variety of woodworking techniques and achieving high-quality results. From corner banding and stringing to irregular shapes, circular motifs, rosettes, and purfling, all the processes are broken down and shown in crisp photos, accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions. Best of all, even the beginner can succeed in doing excellent work by following the directions for using either hand or machine tools. Here's the perfect chance to use rich looking, expensive woods, in small, affordable amounts, on projects such as a Box Lid, Writing Desktop, Violin, or Coffee Table. .
