Here’s a few photos of the marquetry panels I completed during my last two weeks at The American School of French Marquetry. I worked on two exciting marquetry panels: a piece by piece music motif and a fleur éclaté panel.

I did two big step-by-step write ups on making these panels.

Here's the post for the Music Motif panel.

And here's the post for the Fleur Éclaté panel.

Sorry I didn’t have time to convert those to lumberjocks blog posts.

Big thank you to my teachers Patrick Edwards and Patrice Lejeune of The American School of French Marquetry. Thank you both very much for staying late (and early) with me every day.

-- Luke,

Nice work Luke.
I particularly like the quality of the shading on the music motion. I sense the influence and guidance of a certain French advisor. :-) At any rate … you nailed it.

Thank you very much Paul. My French guardian angel was whispering in my ear the whole time.

Incredibly unreal marquetry. 3D effect is amaizing here. Colours are just great.
