    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #56

    Question

    If an apprentice on one of your jobs was told to prepare marquetry faces out of a crotch block flitch, what has she been asked to do?

    Answer

    She has been told to prepare a background face veneer (marquetry face) out of the patterned and sequential veneer (flitch) cut from a tree crotch (crotch block) in order for the background veneer to receive inlaid decorative pieces of wood.
