Marquetry Portfolio

Early in 2015 I took a course in marquetry in order to enrich my work. I had the pleasure of training with Matthew Werner in Scotts Valley, CA. Matthew is a master woodworker and expert in marquetry - and a great teacher!   Spend some time looking over Matthew's portfolio at

Designing and executing marquetry requires patience, a steady hand, and a willingness to break many, many sawblades.   I really enjoy it!  Here are some of my pieces.
