I took a marquetry course from Paul Schurch earlier this year and enjoyed it very much. Since then I have been doing a few projects including this plane. I am restoring a Moultin Bros plane and decided to add marquetry panels with a vine and leaves pattern.

Very nice. There are few things that don’t benefit from a little marquetry.

Looking good!

Might have to post that on my wall as inspiration to get building on my Chevalet…
