From John Twedt, Furniture SIG Chair:

I received an award for Parquetry at the Iowa State Fair, I will bring that piece to this meeting to talk about. I will be giving a presentation on Parquetry for the Ames Woodworkers and I thought that I could make the same presentation for the Saturday Morning Furniture Makers Group for the September meeting.

I will be going over some of the same topics as the presenter discussed during the DMWWA's spring program. I will have better solutions for dealing with veneers. Please join us on the 14th of September at the Woodsmith Store, 9:30 AM.

You can view the handout for this month's presentation here: FurnitureSIG_201909_Parquetry_Presentation.pdf
