    what is this?

    I was watching a video by Phil Lowe and saw this in the background and can't figure what it is used for. A little help from me friends would be great.

    Bill, not completely sure, but looks like a chevalier (sp) like used for marquetry. I think PatrickEdwards has a class where you can build them??

    Patrick is correct. Sometimes called a horse. A very precise tool for marquetry or boule.

    Chevalet de marqueterie in André-Charles Boulle’s language ;-)
    A chevalet is a generic name for a wooden structure used for practicing numerous crafts, tapestry, painting etc.

    Thanks for the info. Never heard of this tool, but there are a couple of interesting vids I found - once I knew what it was.

    In the Woodworking forum on the OWWM site, there’s an old thread titled “Marquetry donkeys” documenting a build.
