Veneers offer an efficient, affordable way to use rare wood species and those with interesting grain patterns to transform functional furniture into unique, eye-catching pieces.

Benson presents woodworkers of all skill levels with a wide overview of the art and techniques of masterfully using veneer and inlay. He begins with a historical background, noting some of the advantages of veneer, then describes how veneers are cut, and explains how to buy and store sheets, apply veneers, and prepare substrates. Through over a dozen step-by-step projects and exercises (including a tabletop, a chessboard and a mirror frame), readers will learn about taping, adhesives, matching inlays and veneer patterns, veneer presses, edging, marquetry, parquetry, and troubleshooting.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 160 pages, 2008.
