Beautiful, How did you learn this craft? What special techniques are required?

Gherga,

This is a stunning table. Your marquetry skills are simply outstanding. I really love the top inlay.

Thank you guys, I’m glad you like it, It takes a lot of time, to get it to an end, the techniques are marquetry and carpentery and of course, veneering surfaces, this finish is an Nitrocelulose, but I intend to go on Acrylic ecological lacquer for the next copies. I don’t have good suppliers here in my country, I can’t find CAB Acrylic Lacquer, that’s what I would need.
Anyway, thanks again, If you know how and where could I sell something like this… please let me know, ok? Another small thing… how much would you appreciate this table in US Dollars???

Wow – what beautiful work. Your original post said you’d ask $1,200 for this piece. I think that would be a fair price for such a piece of art.

You are a very talented craftsman.
