DVD - The Art of Marquetry by Jane Burke
The craft knife technique is shown on this DVD.  The tools required for this kind of marquetry are inexpensive and easy to acquire compared to most other marquetry techniques.
This 50 minute DVD covers many basic aspects of marquetry; how to choose veneer, creating patterns, how to transfer patterns to the veneer, cutting technique, how to adhere the veneer to a piece of wood and some information on applying a finish to the piece of marquetry.

Small Veneer Pack
Small Veneer Pack
10 Sheets of veneer in varying sizes up to 8" x 11".  The pack contains mainly straight grain veneer but has from 2 to 4 pieces with figure (burl or other grain pattern).
This is a nice pack to get started with as you have several different species to create marquetry rather than having to buy a large quantity of only one species.
$15.95 each  USA Shipping included
Knife Kit
Knives & Blades Set
1 x #1 craft knife
1 x #11 blades 5-pack
1 x #5 heavy duty knife
1 x #18 blades 5-pack
1 x gripperThis kit includes both knife handles plus 5 replacement blades for each knife.  The rubber gripper is to cushion the #1 handle, which creates less stress on finger joints.  These are the only cutting tools needed to do this form of marquetry.

Cutting Mat
Alvin Self-healing 8-1/2" x 11" Cutting Mat
This mat is green on one side, black on the reverse with printed 1/2" grid on BOTH sides, so it can be flipped over if it every wears out on one side.  These cutting mats provide a long-lasting, non-glare surface that can be cut and slashed without showing marks or cutting lines.

Coaster Kit
Coaster Marquetry Kit
Create your very own marquetry coaster.  This 3"x3" coaster is an easy first project to introduce you to the art of marquetry.   Included in the pack are three designs, a dog, a cat and a fish, giving you three options for your marquetry coaster.  There are 3 different types of veneer large enough to complete one coaster plus a Poplar block on which to glue the finished marquetry.  You will also get a two sided step by step instuctions sheet with illustrations.
$18.95 each  USA Shipping included
Backer Boards
Picture Backer Boards
When making marquetry pictures which will be framed the marquetry has to be glued to a backer board.  This set includes 8 Baltic Birch plywood boards cut to standard frame sizes.  Each pack contains a variety of sizes, including 9"x12", 8"x10", 5"x7", 4"x6".  These are good sizes for beginner projects and marquetry pictures make great gifts.
$28.95 each  USA Shipping included
Preppin Weapon
Preppin' Weapon Sanding Block
I strongly recommend the use of the Preppin' Weapon sanding block when sanding marquetry.  After spending days or weeks on a single piece of marquetry it would be a shame to sand through the surface.  The shape of the grip on the Preppin' Weapon fits comfortably in your hand and the levers at both ends make changing sandpaper quick and easy.Sized to fit a 1/4 sheet of plain-backed 8" x 11" sandpaper.  Can be used for dry or wet sanding due to its stainless steel, high impact ABS and Styrofoam core construction.Size:  2 3/4" x 7 3/4"
Made in the USA.
