Marquetry, the method used to create pictures from wood veneers, has changed little over the centuries, although the variety and availability of veneers have increased and cutting techniques have improved. Complete step-by-step photographs and illustrations guide craftpersons of all skill levels through the entire marquetry process -- from selecting the picture to making a border, mounting the picture, and finishing it. Separate sections cover the necessary tools and materials, the skills required, and the specific types of wood that can be used. And for woodworkers who master the basics, the book shows how to enhance veneers through parquetry, cutting veneers into geometric patterns; sand shading, using sand to change the color tone of wood; pyrography, using a pen to burn shapes on to a veneer; and cutting slivers, inserting thin strips of wood into background veneers.

The typical American neighbourhood is impersonal, made up of large houses on large lots, with large garages whose remote openers provide residents instant access inside. There's never any need to see or be seen! The good news is that a growing number of homeowners are saying they want more. Pocket neighbourhoods are alternative living arrangements that provide shelter and security, convenience, comfort and meaning. In a typical pocket neighbourhood, parking is intentionally separated from houses, which surround a landscaped common area. Homeowners walk to their doors, past the neighbours they might otherwise never know. This book by architect and author Ross Chapin describes existing pocket neighbourhoods and co-housing communities and provides inspiration for creating new ones.
