Started the marquetry in 2016, finished up recently.

Box is sapele. Marquetry is movingue, mahogany and walnut with a rosewood boarder. The song bird is based on an Andrew Wyeth sketch.

Thanks for viewing!

Just beautiful.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
