These are a few results of testing motifs for the piece by piece method class that I just finished at CSFM and a finished shot of something you may have seen before.
The last shot is of one of the sixteen layer packets that I used to cut parts for one of the motifs.
I have no idea where I will use these but I like them so they will go somewhere.

Beautiful pieces, Paul! I’m still very much a newbie at marquetry. Lots of practice needed – but having fun all the same. :)

Paul, you are the best Marquetry artist I have ever seen….honest.
And I don’t say that lightly, I really mean it.
I have done some Marquetry and I have an appreciation of what it takes to produce pieces like you routinely display, and they are exceptional.
Thank you for sharing your talent with all the rest of us my friend.

Terrific work Paul, can imagine the skill required to produce pieces like these. Should not have a problem finding places to use them. Really like the boat and reflection and thanks for sharing.

You hear that sound, Paul? That’s the wind, whistling through my head. There are no words.
