This is a marquetry panel of a barn for a client back in Wisconsin. It will be mounted in the front panel of a bench for her entryway by another friend of mine who’s building the bench..I had a really good time with this and it took me the better part of 6 hours to cut it all out and another 5 to sandshade it all, but believe it or not..I spent a ton of time on the drawing, just going back and forth changing it here and there till it was how I liked it. The client was thrilled.. I really wanted a good “Sky” veneer and found some redgum venner that I thought was perfect..for some reason even though our natural sky is blue..it didn’t look good in this panel, so I found the redgum which I really like. The last picture is of all the waste from cutting out the parts.. so much too.. This is the 2nd of 2 panels I made..

Thanks for looking..

Randy

Very nice work Randy.
You are right. The sky works well.
What style is the cut?
I suspect not double bevel as you said you made two.

Nicely done Randy. I think this is what Paul Schurch refers to as the Pad method. At ASFM we would call it Painting in Wood.

Amazing how sand shading adds so much depth and dimension, especially the tree.

Thanks for sharing with us.
