Dipped my toe in the waters of parquetry today. Attended a class taught by Donna Hill here in Cincinnati at the Hardwood Lumber and More store.
This is a Mariner’s Star, approx 10×7, walnut and maple set into a field of mahogany. The hardest part was getting all the pieces to come together at the point in the center. I’m happy with it for a first effort. Pay no attention to the pencil marks and the seams as this is the side that will get glued to the plywood substrate.
This is a very quiet and peaceful side of working with wood, but it does require surgical precision with xacto knives and steel rules.
Hey, at least i learned my new bifocal contacts are working okay!
