I am back doing some marquetry. I plan to do more this year. This is a piece that I’ll working on at a club workshop this weekend. More about that next week. For now here are a couple of progress pictures:
The piece is 2 inches high by 12 long. The is after the first cut.
All the pieces cut. Now it’s a little jigsaw puzzle.
Just a short post this week. My shop time has been limited since I am still spending a lot of my creative time editing my book.
If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

That looks beautiful, you certainly have a great talent. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks – it’s a hobby I enjoy.
Wait till you see what it goes on.
I nominated you for the Versatile blogger award. Details will appear on my site shortly
That’s very kind of you. It’s gratifying to know that someone out there likes the little things I do here. And congratulations on being nominated yourself. I do like what you do on your blog.
Thank you Andrew for your kind words. They are much appreciated. They are not little things that you do but are equally important in the bigger scheme of things. Be well
Lovely to see this new and very beautiful work. So talented, I’ve seen no other blogger like you and really enjoy my visits here. 🙂
Glad you enjoy the blog. Just sharing what I do. Thanks.

That looks really intricate, and the end product is very beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.
It’s still a work in progress. I am hoping I don’t screw up the next step. 😉
Before retirement, I worked as a professional calligrapher….do you ever do that kind of lettering carved in wood?
I am not much of a woodcarver, but I have done some script and lettering with veneer and using the scroll saw. Don’t think I have any pictures of that piece.
This is very beautiful.
