Advanced Veneering and Alternative Techniques

Scott Grove

Available Now


Wood veneer offers a wide range of artistic and creative freedom; the varied figures, colored grains, and shimmering textures of veneers, especially burls, offer an aesthetic not found in any other natural material. Scott Grove, award-winning artist and self-taught woodworker, takes you on a journey of working with veneer and shares his hands-on experience with milling, flattening, various cutting and seaming methods, traditional and non-traditional layout patterns, glues, pressing, and repairing. A special section dedicated to Grove's pioneered techniques, wavy contour seam and spiral match, is also included. Traditional and alternative techniques are reviewed with comparison examples. Step-by-step instructions are beautifully illustrated with photographs and renderings along with easy to understand explanations. Thirty years of experience, tips, tricks, and "what to look for" suggestions are sprinkled throughout this must-have book for intermediate to advanced woodworkers.
