Laguiole Folding Knives Marquetry Handles
The « marquetry Boulle »
In France, it was André-Charles Boulle, master cabinetmaker who developed an existing technique called Tarsia a incastro which revolutionized the practice of marquetry. In this method, all the veneers are stacked in a bundle. Then comes the cutting of each shape with the scroll saw known as bocfil or with the “marquetry easel” which has a very fine blade; the whole is cut with a saw. During assembly, a clear veneer is obtained which becomes embedded in the dark wood and vice versa.
Elaboration of the Marquetry in video
The marquetry is a decoration made with cut or inlaid veneers according to a design, then amalgamated with a support. The results obtained can be geometric figurative or abstract.
