Project Information

This is my first venture with Marquetry. I took a class at Highland Hardware in Atlanta with Jane Burke. I really got hooked on the technique, but my fingers did not like the knife method that she taught. I bought a couple of DVDs from Paul Schurch. He teaches Marquetry using a scroll saw. Here is the result, a cabinet for my wife who has a thing for Cotton (she is a quilter and we have cotton growing all around our central Alabama home).

Ah, marquetry is a slippery slope but a great ride.
Very nice work for a first effort. The flowers look very real and the cabinet really benefits from the decoration.

Thanks for posting. I'll be keeping an eye out for your next.

I buy veneers from B&B Rare Woods. They have a large section of not only natural but dyed veneers. I too love Marauetry and follow the techniques of Paul Schurch. Thanks for the comment
