Project Information

I loved that picture of my sister's dog and decided to create a marquetry panel for her. Unfortunately by the time I was done (2009) the dog sadly died…

The picture was made piece by piece (classicla method) in 4 layers, I tried again to use contrasting wood and grain direction more than sand shading that I secluded to the tongue. I should have added some to the fit or contrast more the woods as it is a little to flat for my test.

The background was cut to the maximum size the Chevalet can handle





I got a 4th place at the Design in Wood Show 2009

4th place? You got robbed. I love this project! This looks like a photograph that was photoshop'd to make it look like wood. Excellent job. Thank you for sharing it.

Thank you guys.
I leave the judging to the judges, I try to not keep my expectations to high on that matter. I understand they do not give top places every year to the same person, there is a tacit rotation to keep everyone happy and entering.
I had been lucky and happy enough with what I got in general, i had 1st place every other year and it is already very very good in my opinion. If the cycle stays the same, I do not expect anything big this year, so I will keep my big newer project for next year, and I do not think I can be ready in time for this show anyway.

I have to confess I like most of my my other pieces better also, but I liked that dog, so it happened.
