How many of you remember pin wheels? A simple item that was just fun. I Was teaching my daughter how to do marquetry and this is what she came up with. Although it is a simple picture, I think it uses the negative space well. I also like the way the curly maple makes it look like the wind is blowing. Finished with several coats of shellac.

Yes, I remember that toy from my youth. Beautiful marquetry. Very elegant and not overcrowded picture.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. She did a wonderful job, John.
