Re: UPDATE: Renaissance Intarsia, edited by Luca Trevisan

Looks interesting. I can't say that I've ever read a book review in FWW mag.....might not be a bad addition to the general line of the product. I know you promote Taunton products (which is understandable) but a review of the give aways would be an easy thing, or really any books the staff would recommend.

Thanks for the chance to play.

Yeah, I am an option one guy as well. There are similar plans out there but not tutorials to help. I have never done veneer so that seems interesting.
