Veneer can be incorporated in a variety of ways into furniture construction and other woodworking projects and encompasses a whole range of technical complexity. Everything about using veneer - from how it's made, why to use it, how to use it, and how to combine various techniques to create exciting new work - is expained and lavishly illustrated.

The Craft of Veneering starts with a simple panel made from a single piece of veneer and progresses through more complex veneer assemblies like bookmatching, bent laminations, and veneering curved panels, edging, and crossbanding. At each step, all the information needed to complete the included sample projects using each of the difference methods is provided.

  • Introduces the novice or professional woodworker to a range of veneering techniques from simple to complex that can be used to produce stunning patterns that would be impossible to achieve with solid wood.
  • Outlines all the tools and techniques you'll need to work with veneer (including vacuum bagging and using clamps and cauls).
  • Includes chapters on the fascinating arts of marquetry and parquetry.
  • An illustrated appendix presents enlarged photos of 37 species of wood veneer.

Book Features:
  • This is the definitive guide that presents all the available veneering techniques and backs them up with a full range of projects from applying veneer to a small, flat jewellery box top to veneering the curved doors of a large cabeinet decorated with floral marquetry.
  • Craig Thibodeau is a professional furniture maker who specialises in veneering and decorative inlay.
  • Includes a gallery of work by the author and a variety of other makers to showcase the skills explained in the text.
