When I started my blog on this project last summer I said that it was a tribute to my mentors and teachers, Patrick Edwards and Patrice Lejeune of the American School of French Marquetry and this project post is dedicated to them.
Patrick told me when I attended my first course that if I wanted to really improve I should go to France and buy sawn veneers from Les Fils de J George in Paris. Eventually I did and this is the first piece I have made with them.
The inspiration for my Jewellery box is this one that Patrick built and displays on the masthead of his blog.
I have an extensive blog series on the building of this piece posted here so I will keep this short. All the detail you would ever want to know about it is there.
For now I will just say a heartfelt thank you to Patrick, Patrice, and all those who have suffered through the months of this project in my blog and leave you with some professional detail shots.
Thanks for looking
