Welcome to Marquetry

We are a group of dedicated marquetry woodworkers in North and South Carolina.   We meet about four times a year in various parts of these states.   Our meetings give us a chance to learn new techniques, meet fellow marquetarians and show off our work at our show and tell display.  We welcome you to join us.
