Throughout the year, I conduct an entry-level marquetry workshop
from my studio in Yorba Linda, CA. This class introduces the woodworker
to the double bevel method of composing marquetry. You will learn how
to set up the scroll saw with the correct bevel angle so each cut is tight
and accurate. Each participant will have full access to all the tools
necessary for marquetry and will also complete a tutorial sample to
take home for "show and tell".
Even though the class is called an entry-level marquetry workshop,
returning students can work at their own pace, being confident that
supervision and training are immediately available. These returning
students can work on other projects that are easy or more challenging
to improve their skills.
An all-day advanced class is also available. It includes all the features
of the entry-level class, plus design and pattern development.
The workshops are given on a Saturday, 9am to 1pm. Everything is
provided except good glasses (bring yours if you need them for reading).
The class size is small and is very hands-on. Available to purchase are
Marquetry Kits (woods, pattern, carbon paper), Tool Kits and Veneers for
composing your own designs.
The workshop dates are posted via email. If you are interested in a
workshop schedule, please join the mailing list!
Entry-level class tuition is $65.
Advanced class tuition is $120.
Class is 4 hours and is completed on one Saturday.

Available for Purchase
I have 16 marquetry kits available for those who are able to do double bevel marquetry.
(These kits will be of little use to you if you do not know the method to put them together.)
Each kit has the wood veneers, pattern, transfer paper, and photo of completed piece.
Small kits are $25 each
Medium kits are $30 each
Large kits are $45 each
This kit comprises all the unique tools for doing marquetry at $50 each.
I cut my own veneers for marquetry from solid wood. If you are
interested in purchasing .070" thick veneer for your marquetry project,
let me know. Prices vary.
