A Manual of Veneering by Paul Villiard

Book description
This book is written by an American in 1968. This means American brands, firms and addresses of more than 30 years ago are being used. It contains only 7 drawings, 46 low-quality black-and-white photo's and 4 low-quality colour photo's. There's loads and loads of text with hardly any paragraphing which makes it very hard to read. No doubt this book was a very good book at the time and it has clearly been written by an enthousiast with great knowledge, insight and experience. But nowadays you can choose from many other books with far more and better photo's and drawings containing more general and up to date information, which are much easier to read.

Marquetry (Getty Trust Publications. J. Paul Getty Museum) by Pierre Ramond, Jacqueline Derenne (Translator), Claire Emili (Translator), Brian Considine (Translator)

Book description
For centuries the art of marquetry has been centered in Paris, where the tradition has been transmitted only within workshops concentrated in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine. The outside world, therefore, has had very limited knowledge of the techniques used by the masters of this art. The publication of this English-language edition of La Marquetrie gives amateurs, art historians, creative woodworkers, and conservators access to an invaluable body of knowledge of the techniques of marquetry, covering the history of the craft as well as explanations of how a marqueter's studio is organized and the materials, instruments, drawing, preparation, and procedures used in the craft. It combines a thorough explanation of the craft techniques with detailed analysis of period examples, thereby giving readers a better understanding of marquetry pieces and new insights into shop practices. The book is an invaluable resource both for the art historian and the practicing craftsperson.

Veneering, Marquetry and Inlay (Best of Fine Woodworking) by Fine Woodworking Editors (Editor)

Book description
The title of this book says it all. It does cover Veneering, Marquetry and Inlay. The book is a collection of articles from Fine Woodworking. Therefore, if you have alot of fine woodworking magazines than several parts will look familiar. You will learn a fair amount about veenering from reading this book, most likely more than other veneering books. However, the Marquetry and Inlay sections are lacking. Most of the inlay was about "Inlayed Banding" which can add a nice touch to projects. This book also touches on some concepts I know would be difficult to find in any other book. For example, how to inlay silver and turquoise. Overall, this book will prove valuable to me as a reference for teaching.

Veneering. A Foundation Course by Mike Burton

Book description
Requiring no expensive machinery, veneering offers woodworkers tremendous opportunities for creativity—and for using woods that may be rare, expensive, or structurally weak in their solid form. With this revised version of a classic guide—which includes a brand-new section on marquetry—woodworkers can learn all the basics, from terminology to materials, tools to techniques. There’s detailed instruction on substrates and bonding; preparing the wood; cutting, coloring, and strengthening the veneer; and various methods of finishing and polishing for long-lasting beauty. The exquisite projects range from boxes to a blanket chest, from a kidney-shaped desk to a round dining table. Like having a master craftsman close by, this unique course will help take woodworking skills to new heights.
