Q&A with Rich Gady

Annie1997 asked:
Wow!!!
Rich Gady answered:
You can see the difference, a little bit of darkening makes the mountain edges seem more contoured and sculptured. Enjoy!
Heather Hewlett asked:
I'm interested in marquetry, but I have no woodworking experience. I'm interesting in using a pre-defined pattern as I find the idea of picking a picture and figuring out how to break it down into components to cut out and overwhelming as a beginner. I have been unsuccessful finding any local classes to learn. Do you have an suggestions for someone at entry level?
Rich Gady answered:
I would suggest you look at some of the books recommended on the book list. There are several which give very good instruction for beginners. You could also contact the American Marquetry Society to find out if there are any groups in your area. www.americanmarquetrysociety.com.
