At our meeting on April 9th, Kevin Boyle of WOOD Magazine will present a program on veneering furniture projects. Kevin will demonstrate how to make a simple (but beautiful) book-matched veneer panel. He is an excellent instructor, who offers practical solutions to veneering problems and "demystifies" the process. We look forward to Kevin's presentation.
