« Part 1: Part 2 Part 2 of Jewelry box series Part 3: Part 4 »

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.

Looks very nice.
Is there a reason you didn’t shade the flowers?

Hi Paul, It was a request from my good lady that I left them unshaded. My next project while have sandshading more than likely. In my first post on the jewellery box you mentioned about using a caul to press the veneer, I will have my bag of dry sand and tray to hold the sand and press the veneer that way if things do not go right.( In my mind it will be ok so I am half way there. yeah right!!), it was also the way I pressed the curved lid on my first project.

Sand works too with the advantage that you can heat it (less than 200 F) for better job with the HHG. Then you don’t have to hurry as much and can make really sure you have the panel well secured against slipping. I use heated cauls a lot when I glue up marquetry.

Hi Paul, thanks for that information. had not thought about heating the sand but makes sense. It has been very well worth while signing up to LJ for information like that and seeing what other folks are producing with outstanding results. very interesting types of timbers been used also.
