Here are some marquetry boxes I made last and previous years.

All are in “white wood” decorated with thin veneers of 0.6 mm.
Red & blue veneers are colored ones, bought as such.
All other ones are natural venners : lacewood, koto, anigré, etc
Venners are cut either manually with a bocfil or with a scalpel.

Don’t hesitate to comment !

Clean, tasteful designs and careful workmanship. A lot to like about these. Hope to see more from you.

Very nice boxes Muriel. It’s good to see more of your marquetry. I loved the poppies
The cuts here are very clean, again nice work.
