I have already had two people ask me to do a marquetry picture for them. The first is an intarsia pattern from Scroll saw woodworking and crafts. The second was from a lady who’w daughter drew the picture. These were done with the shop built marquetry saw I posted. They turned out pretty well and the people were thrilled. However, I still have a lot to learn and plenty of room to improve.

Thanks for the kind words. I am going to try my hand at sand shading to maybe add a little character. I need to find an old skillet and hot plate first.
