Description: Soft covered book titled VENEER CRAFT FOR EVERYONE by Harry Hobbs, 154 pages.
Here is the complete introduction to veneer overlay, the art of cutting shapes out of thin pieces of wood and gluing them to a surface to create useful and decorative objects such as pictures, tabletops, puzzles, and boxes.
The preliminary steps are thoroughly described. Step by step directions are provided for both knife-cutting and saw cutting techniques; assembling design parts, gluing them to a mounting panel, and finishing the project - filling the joints, sanding, and framing - are explained in detail. Advanced veneering methods and simplified marquetry are also discussed.
There is also a project section containing directions and full size patterns for 30 different projects, including wall plaques, picture puzzles, jewelry, mobiles, and household articles. Among the subjects featured are animals, panoramic scenes, flowers, and folk art designs.
This book is in VG condition, pages clean and intact, and the binding is tight. The cover has a tear that was repaired with tape, and it also has a few creases. Don't miss the opportunity to add this sensational book to your library!
