My first attempt at marquetry. All by hand, but I’d like to try a scroll saw at some point. The frame is wormy butternut with bridle joints and there’s a variety of woods used for the deer. I pressed the veneer in the vacuum bag with a cherry veneer backer. This was a gift to my dad and brother who are avid outdoorsmen. My deer has a bit of a droopy eye..a couple pieces were dropped in a little off where I had intended. I also scorched a few of the pieces to add some depth.

Nice job. Marquetry is beyond me but I like it.

That’s nicely done, nobody’s gonna care that the eye is ‘droopy.’ How did you enjoy your first foray into this branch of woodworking?

Good first try. Not your fault that the deer you used as a model had a droopy eye.
The important thing is that you captured it faithfully.
Welcome to the wonderful world of marquetry.
