« Part 5: Level one Day Two, Self Portraits Part 6 of Marquetry School series Part 7: Level Two, Painting in Wood ....first two days »

It’s been a few days since I checked in but they have been busy days around CSFM. On Wednesday the students dove into the third étude, the art nouveau piece, and by end of day Thursday all were finished and ready for the mounting boards.

Today was the last day of level one and we finished up the week’s projects, did a couple of demos on hammer veneering and French polishing and handed out diplomas. Everyone finished all the work and agreed that it was a fun time.

The gallery is small but it is growing.

Thanks for looking in.

Hi Paul. After looking at your students there must be 3 reasons why they look so happy

1) Some thing in the water.
2) You are good with Photoshop. OR
3) You are a good tutor.
I am going with the #3 and hope it goes well once again.

The world of Marquetry will continue to take a step forward with Men like you passing on your knowledge and skills
to fellow LJ’s THANKS AGAIN !!!!!

Awesome work Paul! Was the veneer stained for the coloured pieces and if so what stain? I love the patterns that the class used.

Excitement and fun in the air for all that for sure by the looks on everyone’s faces.
Learning wood working is such a thrilling experience.
