Our marquetry guild is having a show in March so was motivated to put something together for the show. This is what I came up with. The background is mahogany, the moon is maple and the rest is dyed veneer. The pattern is a scroll saw pattern from Steve Good that I adapted to marquetry. Not the most difficult marquetry but I think it turned out.

Beautiful work as always John. Marquetry aside, the frame is quite eye-catching.

Yeah ….. It turned out alright!
(not to be confused with Yeah, it turned out …. all right.). :-)

Simply elegant and elegantly simple John, not an easy thing always.
