Here’s a nice video showing the French polish on the last Louis XIV marquetry bird. It’s difficult to catch the finish in photos.

This video also marks the end of the Louis XIV bird project. The rest of the birds in the series are very similar. Thank you for following along!

The choice of different wood colours is realy amaizing. So realistic bird.

Luke,

Your marquetry is astounding! And the quilted maple (?) background catapults it over the top!
