My first marquetry project, finished and gifted. I think it came out okay, there’s a few things I would do differently, like be careful and make sure I’m gluing the right side down, and not the side that has all the pencil marks on it…..
I also need to invest in a bandclamp instead of the 90 degree clamp I tried to use to keep everything square.
Maple background with I’m not sure what else for all the other bits, it was in an unlabeled assorted lot. I wish I knew what the burl the bellies were made out of was, I have more of it I want to use. The frame is Western Red Cedar, and the substrate is 1/4 plywood. Finish is about 6 mornings worth of hand rubbed shellac.
Edit – Added what I hope was a much better picture.
