Intended for those new to the craft, this DVD gives thorough and detailed instruction in this ancient art of creating pictures with wood veneer.
Walker takes you step by step through the creation of a simple scene while teaching composition and design, veneer selection for ease of cutting and permanence of color, pattern making, proper knife technique, correcting mistakes, gluing up (with or without a press), and applying the finish. Numerous "Jan's Tips" emphasize important details and point out how to avoid pitfalls.
This is a craft that can be practised in a corner of your shop or at the kitchen table using a minimum of tools and supplies. One of the patterns shown on the cover, "Foothills Hiker", is included.
