Well, I’ve been cutting diamond shapes for the Louis cubes and gluing them onto a piece of paper in preparation for gluing to the substrate for the table top. This is very time consuming, as when you put glue on the veneer it starts to curl up and you have to weight it down until the glue sets, so you only get a dozen or so pieces glued at a time and have to wait an hour or so for the setting process. Boring, but it should be worth it in the end.
This will be my very first marquetry/parquetry ptoject, so I’m anxious to see how it comes out. So far it is taking a lot more time than I thought it would. Such is life, eh?
I hope to have some photos to post tomorrow.
Well, back to the glue pot.
