    little marquetry

    Doing a little marquetry the last few days. Made a door of birds eye to match the back board of a small cabinet and needed to match up to.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I've used 2 different transfer methods. After drawing out the design I used Transfer paper for one but then decided to use think blue type for the other. After I chiseled out the design I layed the type over the cuts and edged it with a knife. Then put the type on the Mahogany veneer and cut the design out. This was very easy and much more precise then using the transfer paper.

    Well the good thing is Larry , your starting to get work.
    The piece of birds eye I used came from an old drawer bottom. So it's about the same age.
