Very nice work jeanmarc.

This appears to be “stack cut” while your floral and bird pictures appear to be either “conical cut” (double bevel method), or “window cut”. Am I correct?

I am a studying marquetry history, and practicing right now for an upcoming commissioned piece that is a slightly modern edition of an 18th century French, ladies writing desk. I am working mostly by hand with a deep throat fret saw using the conical cutting method.

Your work is very impressive!

John Fry: I don’t know if it is useful, but David Marks just did an episode on inlay/fret and he showed you how to do double bevel method and window cuts using his scrollsaw.

He broke a ton of blades doing it, but the work turned out great.

That is way cool of a design. Did you use a scroll saw
Do you plan to incorporate it in a furniture piece
If so, I cant wait to see how it develops.

Thanks for posting
