Marquetry Serving Tray #1: Introduction/Design

05-24-2014 11:50 PM by jmartel | 1 comment »

My mom approached me about doing something for my father for Father’s day. Only requirements were that it was to be something for their boat, and that it have the boat’s name on it. Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray.

Marquetry Images #1: First Cuts

05-16-2014 04:57 PM by Mike Lingenfelter | 7 comments »

I finished my Chevalet build a while ago and now I have been getting to know the tool. After I finished tuning the Chevalet, I needed to find the first image I would cut. I tried to find something interesting but “simple” to start with. Seeing that this a French tool I chose a Fleur-de-lis.

Every day I check the Colissimo website to track the packages and yesterday the word was (in French of course) that the first pack...
