This is a 22 inch diameter lazy susan with a packet cut marquetry pattern. The substrate is mdf, the border is shop sawn bocote veneer.The radial match was from some walnut I found on eBay, (rosebud veneer). Here is the process.
- Make the 8 way radial match.
- Freehand cut the walnut radial match and add black veneer cross grained banding
- Cut and assemble the Spanish Cedar border larger than needed. Lay the walnut and black border piece over the cedar. Use it as a template to cut the cedar. Do not cut final size yet.
- Draw the ribbon pattern, mount it to cardboard. Assemble the packet and scroll saw the pieces.
- Sand shade and glue the veneer to the mdf substrate.
- I then glued more mdf to the backer veneer to thicken the edge.
- The bocote was sawn to 1/8” edge glued to make a 6’ long piece. It was then band clamped to the edge.
The finish is French Polish.
I need some help. I made the ribbons out of veneer I got from an assortment. I don’t know the species and would like to provide a good description to the client.
