« Part 8: Spring 2016 Level Two Wrap-up Part 9 of Marquetry School series Part 10: Spring 2017 Classes underway »

Fall classes are rolling around in a few weeks and there’s something new. I now have students who have enough experience to benefit from a piece by piece class and two will be taking advantage this September. This means that I have to prepare a palette of colours, grain patterns, and species of veneer in packets of four for them to design their pieces around.
Today, I selected and cut thirty-five packets complete with backers (no front “wasters” on piece by piece packets). Tomorrow I will reinforce the show faces with newspaper / hot hide glue and assemble them all.
As time goes by the palette will fill in but I think these selections will be a good start.
