  1. Plywood Palomino

    OK, I promise that this might be the last chevalet I post. :-) I just finished a new chevalet for the school so that students could test drive one of the CNC kits. This one is not veneered and proudly shows off its plywood (veneer) heritage. I'm impressed and a little surprised by the...
  2. Empire table

    Couple months ago we delivered this Empire diner room table. Our clients loves empire and asked us to create a dining room table inspired by an italian empire library table. The top was made from solid mahogany Patrick Edwards bought in 72 or 74, I can't remember. The marquetry for the...
  3. Toscana, A hand dyed marquetry study

    "Toscana" is a hand dyed marquetry plaque mounted on 3/8" MDF. I made it at the request of my good' wife for a decorative accent to go on our new granite / tile cabinet upgrade. The substrate is cut precisely to the outline of the picture and dyed black on the edge. The marquetry is all cut...
  4. Eagle Marquetry

    My first piece by piece marquetry in École Boulle, Paris, during my marquetry workshop in 1996. In fact it is my second marquetry the first one could not fit together and I had to recut the all project. I keep it to remember to not cut to fat.
  5. White Cockatoo

    I started cutting that project in France before to be sponsored by Patrick Edwards and Kristen Arrivee from Antique Refinishers and American School of French Marquetry in 2006. I brought back the half cut pieces and packs in my luggage. As a restorer I practised marquetry but mainly for...
  6. Being 2

    Another 2008 Picture. On that one I tried to do the opposite of the white cockatoo, use big pieces, on the verge of abstraction with hopefully enough details to suggest the topic of that piece. Cut with the marquetry chevalet, using piece by piece method, in 2 layers.
  7. Experimenting : The Fusion Technique

    Last 2008 picture. I was fascinated by the piercing technique developped by Vriz in France during the 80's. The only thing I did not like was the nam, piercing. Piercing is a mistake and I did not like to use that term as the piercing was intended. With Patrick Edwards we finaly settle on the...
  8. A Pair of Japanese Tea Boxes

    This set of small boxes was made on a marquetry chevalet, with two copies of each made simultaneously. The designs were taken from 18th century prints by the Japanese woodblock master Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806). The marquetry was produced using maple and walnut burls, dyed Koto and a couple...

  10. Orphéo

    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...
  11. Marquetry Upgrade on my Desk Doors

    One of the first few projects that I posted on Lumberjocks when I joined back in 2010 was a new desk I had made for my office. I was very pleased with the router marquetry I had done on the doors at the time and in all fairness I still like them but the challenge was there to use my improved...
  12. Gaëtane

    In the pursuit of mastering the fusion technique I did this portrait of my niece Gaëtane. A mix of fusion and piece by piece, cut in 4. I started from a picture Chose the woods And started from the center out. I did not care much about accuracy on that project, I chose to use a...
  13. The Shack #1 #2 and #3

    Another marquetry challenge on Fusion, "The Shack" One of my most brain aching projects. On that one I used the same technique than on Gaëtane, with prefused packs, but also a prefused background. I used a maple background That i glued on a assembly board, then I placed my clouds, building...
  14. Chevalet - rescued from the fire wood pile

    I have finally finished my chevalet! I used "Shipwright's" aka Paul Miller's excellent Sketch Up design with some tweaking to fit my available raw materials which were essentially pieces of an old oak doorframe that had been destined for the fire, supplemented by various off cuts I found. I...
  15. Il Gallo Nero, A Marquetry Tray

    This is the first of what will likely be a series if projects displaying this Black Rooster Marquetry motif based on the logo of the Consorzio Chianti Classico, the cooperative of growers who produce this wine. In Italy "Classico" denotes wine that is made from only grapes grown within a given...
  16. Boulle marquetry doors

    Couple years ago we were hired to build a Boulle cabinet for a client in New York who wanted a murphy bed for his office. The project started with a all Armoire, before they changed there mind and decided to go for just the door on a black cabinet. The Armoire project had a marquetry layout...
  17. At Last

    This picture as a story I find interesting. Around 2000 I was coming back from work, a workshop in Paris suburbs when my high was attracted by an an old battered drawing portfolio in the trash. I looked at it and found century old studies from a Beaux-Arts student of the 1900 period. Novel art...
  18. Marquetry Foolishness ... another shop bench

    In these times we need something to smile about. This is another marquetry folly of mine in the form of a work desk for the marquetry room in my shop. It features marquetry bouquets and parquetry from the work of Jean Henri Reisener. More importantly it will make me smile every time I go into...

    ..I am removing all the content I can from LJ I desagree with the way its ran. You can see my work at http://www.sandhillwoodworks.com/
