by Scott Grove
In this book, Grove explores traditional veneering techniques, then expands on those possibilities with a range of unconventional methods that he has developed. He presents a comprehensive overview of how to create, lay out and apply veneer, before stretching the boundaries through innovative designs.
Useful for repairs and other situations where you want to conceal the work, he shows how to use wavy contour lines that are less conspicuous than the usual straight seams. To create spirals and other bold, eye-catching patterns, he explains his straightforward system of developing complex asymmetrical compositions.
Illustrated throughout with clear, step-by-step photos that demonstrate the techniques, while offering plenty of creative ideas you can adapt in your own work.
