Had not tried marquetry so I thought I’d give it a try. The lobster boat is based on a picture I took on vacation in Nova Scotia (Peggy’s Cove). I used the packet cutting method on a scroll saw. The boat picture has about 23 different types of wood and about 120 pieces. The blue and green are dyed poplar, the boat is blood wood, others include maple, walnut, sapelle, mahogany, and others, the box is rosewood on walnut. Included are a few other boxes with different motifs. Finish is lacquer. Thanks for looking and appreciate any critique or suggestions for a novice in marquetry.

Your marquetry is spectacular. I’m a novice at marquetry as well but yours is beautiful! I still have a lot of practice ahead. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

That is an amazing set of marquetry boxes! Too many to comment on individually, but they are all beautiful!

Very nice work. I’m not sure you still qualify as a novice though. :-)
Stay with it. Marquetry has a way of drawing you in and it is a lovely way to go.

Very impressive work. I don’t blame you for taking advantage on utilizing the extras on the stack cuttings.
