Shopmade veneer by hand
This video makes me want to learn more about the art that is being depicted here. There is a lot to like in these two minutes.
I like the craftsman’s stance, his bench-hook, his clamping system. I like the variety of designs he’s able to create with this technique. Most of all, though, I liked the surprise I felt when I realized he had something bigger in mind than decorative bandings.
The finished piece might seem visually busy to some, but after seeing just a sliver of the work involved I am thoroughly impressed. Check it out.
