Here is a rose I made recently. I haven’t decided what to put it in yet.

Very nice. What technique did you use? I am just getting into marquetry and have a couple items but nothing completed yet.

Beautiful Rose! You did a excellent job
Have you ever used the “Boulle Technique” or the “Classic Method”?

Great job! I’m just beginning the journey into veneers and marquetry. I hope I can get to your level sometime.

Dennis, I have tried using a scroll saw without much luck except with some thick stock. Since I am pretty new at this I haven’t tried too many methods. Here is a pen I made a few years ago.
Owen, it isn’t as hard as it seems. My level isn’t much beyond yours@

I’d put the rose in water, you don’t want it to wilt.
Oh wait, that’s not a real rose! Looks great!

Great looking work. I like how you shaded the petals to give depth to the flower.I am assuming you did this by sand shading ??
You mentioned “window method”. Could you elaborate a little more.Also, what cutter did you use? Scalpel?
I agree in reference to the jigsaw. I have not had any success when using it to cut commercial veneers.Works ok on shop sawn veneers (thicker, like you said), but mainly use those cuts for inlay work.
Thanks for posting.Dave

The window method is nothing more that cutting your piece in the substrate and using that blank as a window. It allows positioning the piece to best show grain orientation for the picture. I use an off brand Exacto knife, similar to a scalpel.
