Since ancient Egyptian times, woodworkers have used wood veneer to create amazing, beautiful and long-lasting objects. Veneering in wood offers a craftsperson a wide range of artistic and creative freedom; the varied figures, colored grains and visual shimmering textures of veneers and especially burls offer an aesthetic not found in any other natural material.

In this book, Scott Grove, award-winning artist and self-taught woodworker, takes you on a journey of working with veneer and shares his hands-on experience with milling; flattening; various cutting and seaming methods; traditional and non-traditional layout patterns; glues; pressing; and an extensive segment on repairs. A special section dedicated to Grove’s pioneered wavy contour seam and spiral match is also included.
