As always I intended to put up some process shots as I went but again I just never got around to sitting down at the computer. Maybe its because I spend so much time in front of a computer. Maybe it’s because at some points a marquetry panel is not very photogenic!
A few shots are below showing the process of building up the marquetry panel. It started with a nice piece of rotary cut bird’s eye maple plywood I picked up.
Finish is Super Blond Shellac and wax.
This was a fun project. Started at the beginning of July and finished by my deadline (Thanksgiving – barely…). We even had a fire on Turkey Day and it was just, pleasant.
