I have always been fascinated with this art form and would love to learn more about it. I saw some magnificent examples of this when I went to Germany some years back

Those are beautiful. The wood selection on the bobcat is outstanding, along with the craftsmanship.

Love them! I have just started trying this. Need LOTS of practice. Yours are very nice.
Keep up the inspiration.

Very nice work. Since I have not done any marquetry I’m not familiar with the window method.
