the woodworker to create images using veneers, whether as an entire picture
for a wall hanging or tabletop, or as a special detail on a cabinet front.
Inlay is the art of inserting figural veneers into completed panels and
gives the ability to upgrade the piece from normal to quite special.
Parquetry is the use

Geometric design work can produce striking panels, suitable for wall decor,
tabletops, and other uses.
