Marqueterie Mysteries


Craftsman W. Patrick Edwards recently made an interesting video on marquetry in conjunction with the Art Institute of Chicago. Patrick discusses the video, which you can view at his site, and also explores the history of the “chevalet” – a saw guide that assists the craftsman.

Very good stuff and worth watching.

Read about (and watch) the videos here.

    And here I always thought a chevalet was an automobile that you got to drive around town in. Always ready to learn something new.

    Absolutely fascinating. Is this a taste of what Monsieur Roubo has in store for us?
