This is an experiment to see how things would look just cutting out veneer and gluing it directly to another piece of wood without doing an inlay or a full veneer.
The border pieces are Holly stacked and cut on a scroll saw and then glued to a Wenge backing board. I found that the problem is the glue squeeze out. If I were to do this again I would probably apply glue to the back and let it dry. Then use an iron to apply it.
The veneer is Holly with a Wenge background and a Maple frame and Wenge in the corners for strength.
It was made for an 8×10 picture.
All in all it turned out pretty good.
