I’ve made a bunch of bookmarks over the last couple of years. Mostly presents. Here’s a few of my favorites.

Those are very nice. Could you tell how you made them.

That is some stunning work. Someday I would love to be able to do that.

I started about 6 years ago. All I can say is just get started. If you’re lucky you can find a class near you. I was fortunate to take a weekend class with an expert. After that I was hooked. I was getting tired of making big furniture pieces and all the noise and sanding. Marquetry is much more peaceful work, uh fun I mean.

I just posted an explanation for another piece in this post: https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/415709#comment-4960562. The procedure for bookmarks is mostly the same except for mounting them. Normally I mount my work on 3/8” MDF. That’s obviously too thick for a bookmark. The marquetry part is 2mm thick and I mount it to another 2mm thick veneer. Then I run it through my drum sander and make it a bit thinner. Then I cut out the shape. I use epoxy to glue the pieces together. I’ve never had an issue with cupping since I started using epoxy.
