This is my new chevalet de marqueterie, the Canadian version. This one is made of Garry Oak, one of our local hardwoods and has some improvements over the Az. model: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/45446 It works amazingly and I can’t wait to get started.
Accent woods are Paduk, Arbutus, and a bit of Wenge (wheels on clamp lever). The last photo shows some of the interesting grain structure that is all over this piece.
I have had this material for about six years in very rough slabs, but hadn’t paid much attention to it until now.
You can see the bit of marquetry on the face. I will post it separately but it represents my first work with this chevalet and will remain there as a “baseline” to indicate where I started. My hope is that in years to come I will look back at it and smile.
