This is a graduation gift for my Granddaughter. She is off to college to study international relations. As she can speak and write Japanese, and has spent a couple of weeks in that country, I though a bit of marquetry would be nice. Too bad I didn’t know how to do it! This is the 3rd attempt at the image. It leaves a bit to be desired yet, but if I wait any longer, I will have to work on a college graduation gift!
The wood is ribbon sapele, which I love to work with. I did the marquetry using the packet method as shown by Paul Schurch. Looked easy when he did it.
