Well it’s been a while since I started the marquetry on the door. It’s now complete, well at least getting in all the pieces. I have to sand everything and fit the door to the cabinet. I am undecided if I want to use a pore filler on this because the padauk is so porous. I will admit to you right now that not every fit is perfect. After countless hours holding a knife fatigue sets in followed by some sloppiness. I try my best to stop working on it at that point but after a few months I was needing it done. So here it sits, unfilled and unfinished. I think I managed to keep the fits relatively tight with my method and I’m positive that with more experience the small gaps will fade.
