I wish this tray had been my own design but it would have been impossible as I have no artistic skills. The inspiration, I should say the pattern came from (wwhttp://www.amazoncanvas.com/#index.htmlw.wood-veneers.com/j-home.htm) I used the lower portion of the piece displayed. The tray will never be sold and hopefully will become a familly heirloom. I hope. To do this tray I had to improvise and extend my coping saw from a 12” throat to a 31” throat. It is easily adaptable and although all I needed for this project was 24” clearance, I thought why not make it a bit longer for maybe future projects. If anyone is interested in the saw I can post more photos. It is no piece of art but it works. Here are some wonderful links pertaining to marquetry. Enjoy.
