Our marquetry kits are available in 5 types and with plenty of designs to choose from. All our kits include the items listed under ‘Basics’. Then, depending on your kit type, it also includes what’s listed under ‘Extras’.
Mixed Wood Veneer Pack (with list)
Balance Wood Veneer
Crossbanding Pack (edge wood veneer & boxwood flat lines)
Carbon Paper (1 A4 Sheet)
Please note, our kits do not come with a complete guide stating where the wood veneers go, or in what direction.
This is left entirely to the hobbyist’s imagination.
The design template is shaded to help identify the light and dark areas.
Balance Wood Veneer: This covers the back of the MDF board. It’s important to “balance” the panel by veneering both sides of the MDF board. This helps everything stay flat and prevent warping while the glue dries. If one side of a panel is left bare, it can warp over time as it will absorb moisture from the air at a different speed than the veneered side.
Crossbanding Pack: This contains the edge wood veneer and boxwood flat lines which are to be used to frame the picture by covering outer edges of the picture, as well as the thickness of the MDF board to create a border/picture frame.
Carbon Paper: This can be used to transfer the design to the wood veneer. Alternatively, tracing paper also works well.
What do the Extras look like?
Each kit is available in 11 designs. The “starred” ★ designs are simpler and ideal for beginners.
