This is a gorgeous project. The marquetry details are simply stunning.

Thanks for the post.

Il s’agit d’un superbe projet. La marqueterie de détails sont tout simplement époustouflants.

Grâce à ce poste.

Les projets très agréables, je regrette que je n’aie pas votre talent. Je regardais souvent ce genre de travail mais c’est juste au-delà de moi. Marquetery est une de ces formes d’art le mieux quittées à vous les experts.

À propos, soyez bienvenus à LumberJocks

By the way,I failed french at school ….LOL

Very beautifyl marquetry, Jeanmarc.

I studied reading French for two years in college. I can read and comprehend pretty well, but responding is much more difficult.

My French left me years ago but the pictures are worth 1000 words. Very nice work.

I believe it says something along the lines of “Work made during a marquetry course at Versailles”
Either way, it’s beautiful work, I would like very much to take that course.
