Ecole San Diego

Last year I went to a meeting of the local chapter of the SAPFM, which was fun even though I’m not heavily into period furniture forms.  There was a Marquetry demonstration involving a Chevalet, which is a specialized tool for cutting marquetry developed and popularized in France.  The presented mentioned having taken several classes at the American School of French Marquetry in San Diego…and the seed was planted.

I’ve been poking around for an interesting woodworking class to take lately, and I came across the “Stage I Boulle Marquetry” class at ASFM and I just signed up for it.  I’m looking forward to spending a week learning a new technique.  I’m sure I’ll post updates on this class, which will be the first week of October.

  1. This looks like a great opportunity Joe. I’m already looking forward to seeing what you will be able to accomplish after the class.

    Enjoy yourself.
