You have to love rainy days as you get time to play!! ( to wet to work on the building site).
Finished cutting and assembling some of the marquetry that I plan to use on the box.
You may see on one piece of marquetry it has a clear film on it. I have used a product called Dura seal which people cover book covers with for protection to assemble the marquetry on as it has a sticky surface to it and holds the pieces in the right place then I put veneering tape on the opposite side and remove the Dura seal.
I started to put borders of American walnut around the top so I can start cutting in the Zebrano.
After a marathon of gluing with hot hide glue I had managed to veneer the top of the lid.
