I am starting off my Marquetry adventure with a big project. It is a murphy bed with a couple whales on the face. Here is a rendering of it:
The background will be maple, dark color will be Walnut and the reddish color will be cherry. I have a sign company making me full size templates of each piece and will cut the veneer by hand. I’ll use veneer tape and stick it all and a plywood substrate. The overall face is 62” x 82” and will be split into two sections 31” x 82”.
