For the marquetry I needed to figure out a few obstacles before starting the real marquetry for the top.
This practice piece is 23” wide x 33” long, this ellipse is much smaller then the top at 60” x 80”
The practice piece I simplified the design down to just one tree with the sky, grass, bank, sand, and water.
So far it has taken me about three weeks to finally get to this stage and finishing the practice piece.
Finding the right veneers and almost redrawing the whole top marquetry design, just so I could cut the veneer using three different styles and combining them together.
I haven’t taken many step pictures just incase they didn’t turn out. On my next blog I will show the step pictures on bleaching and coloring and how I cut and fit all the different packets together.
Thank you very much LJs for looking, and happy woodworking to you.
