If you don't like the idea of having leather upholstery, you can always get faux one but once you feel the touch of the real thing, you won't replace it. That is what happened to me right after I got my first leather jacket. From then on there were bags, shoes, clothes, hats, accessories and finally furniture. The best thing is this is the most durable material. If you take proper care for it and make sure to keep leather conditioned it can last extremely long.
There are wood carvers and then there are "Master Wood Carvers" and Michael Park is a 2nd generation Master Wood Carver. Michael studied his trade as his father's apprentice at a young age and then mastered his trade over 19 years of elaborate researching and practice.
The same hot iron and gluing method is used in repairing marquetry. Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.
