  Thanks so much for your prompt and excellent customer service. Much appreciated! The students       are loving it; everyone is so engaged. – Kevin Kuipers, Garden River AB, CA

Robert Dunn, a freelance writer for woodworking magazines and reviewer of woodworking teaching videos, says, “The images are bright, crystal clear and well chosen. The close ups are perfectly done and clearly illustrate the specific lessons…. Every step is clearly and completely shown. I was really impressed with the quality of the production and … teaching–it’s truly a look over the shoulder of a master at work.”

Dave Peck, of Redwood Valley Ca., former editor of ‘The American Marquetarian” remarks: “I have seen this DVD…well put together…will be a great resource for those wanting to get started with knife – cut marquetry… or a club may want it for their library.”

Master American marquetry artist, Silas Kopf, reviewed the video and had this to say: “if they watched your video, they might say “well let me give it (marquetry) a try…and you’ve set them on their way to a lifetime of satisfaction. Bravo!”

Some neat stuff to do . . .
