    Beginner’s Marquetry Kit and Video

    Jan Walker of  Alberta has a marquetry kit and instruction video available in either VHS or DVD which includes veneers for making a marquetry picture of a hiker in the mountains.  The video describes preparatory procedures, supplies and every cut for making this easy 8-piece picture The length of the video is 100 minutes and the beginner can follow along with every cut.  This kit uses the knife-cutting technique which describes, among other things the correct types of knives and cutting procedures.  Every cut is shown but does use a “fast-forward” technique to allow seeing the cuts, but not bore the viewer in a long repetitive procedure.  It is used sparingly so as not to be overdone. The DVD is arranged in a chapter format which allows convenient places to stop.  Tips are presented along the way, yielding valuable information.
