John Felten


Although John was originally interested in large-scale woodworking, he enrolled in a marquetry class at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking in 2012, and was hooked. He has continued to develop his skills in marquetry, inlay, and veneering, and sees them as tools to probe his personalities creative and artistic elements. Now a member of the American Marquetry Society and the Rocky Mountain Marquetry Guild, John enjoys this technique because it allows him to add a distinctive touch that sets a project apart from others. It allows for a different level of personal expression, so the boxes and trays that he creates become a canvas for something additionally artistic.
