From the Back of the Case
If you have ever wanted to take a “hands-on-class” with David Marks, although haven’t been able to, than this DVD is as close to the hands on experience as you can get while viewing this in the comfort of your own home. The viewer will feel as if they are in David’s shop getting personal instruction. Art is in the details as is demonstrated by David’s meticulous craftsmanship.
David Marks has been teaching students how to do double bevel marquetry since the mid 1990’s. This 90 minute DVD is a thorough step by step lesson of this process, including how to create your own designs even if you don’t think of yourself as being artistic.
Demonstrations in this DVD include:
– The design process.
– Demonstration of cutting thick veneer.
– Setting up the scroll saw for perfect cuts.
– Sand shading, gluing , and finishing the surface.
– There is also a chapter on the work of students that have studied with David as well as some work that has inspired David.
If you’re familiar with David Marks from his Woodworks days, you might be surprised to see what the “real” David is like. He’s much more laid back and mellow than his on-tv personality and that’s a real benefit when it comes to learning from him. Instead of being nervous, you find yourself thinking this is the kind of guy you’d love to share a beer with. It just so happens that he’s one of our modern masters. This DVD does a good job of conveying David’s careful attention to detail and shows us exactly how he works his marquetry magic. The DVD does have a few technical production issues, but we find these can be easily overlooked thanks to the delivery of high quality information.
