Practicing marquetry for my next box. It’s been awhile for me, so figuring out which style and color of veneers to use can be the hardest part, just getting started.
This design took me about three weeks to come up with and will to be used for the top of a Gem Box that I am working on.
Cutting out the Pearl and Abalone and inserting into this practice piece top was a little time consuming but very enjoyable. Using basically the Window Method, cutting out the sharp corners where the toughest.
Here are a few pictures of the steps I used to make the Gem Star insert. Thank you for looking!
