First Marquetry Project
I've done veneer work for a number of years, including geometric designs in veneer. But I've never done marquetery. Recently, I signed up for Paul Schurch's marquetry class in November in Santa Barbara. To prepare for the class, I got his DVD and followed the instructions to do a modification of the project on the DVD. It wasn't as hard as I though it would be but this is a very simple marquetry project.
A picture of the panel is below. I just have two coats of shellac on it, but I'll finish it with lacquer and use it as the bottom of a serving tray.
I'm looking forward to the class to gain more skill in this technique. I think it will open up a world of decorative possibilities.
[Unfortunately, the picture does not show the detail well.]
Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
