Wednesday Woodworking – Marquetry Flowers

I’ve started on a new Marquetry project.  This will be for a clock.  I’m cutting this on the scroll saw.  Just one picture this week:

Flowers and leafs and steams. It’s about 2/3rds done.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop.

    Hi there Andrew!
    Its been a while. I got a cheap scroll saw, and I’ve been playing with it a couple of weeks from now. Got a few blades, 2,5,7,9 and a pinned hook 7tpi for coarse outside cuts in a very hard wood. My main gold is general fretwork, puzzles and after that i’ll like to try some marquetry.
    Can you point some directions?
    Thanks for your time

    Wow ! Amazing ! My dad used a scroll-saw. Nothing this intricate though 🙂 He used lath and stain 😉 I about cut my finger off 40 yrs ago on a ban saw & have stayed out of the wood shop ever since 😉 🔎

  5. This design reminds me of Japanese woodcut prints at this point in time. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    I love Marquetry — and I’m guessing it’s the hardest bit of woodworking one could undertake!
