Default Repurposed Reject

I got tired of seeing the plain back on the Drumsander cabinet and I had this first attempt at Marquetry reject laying around ,so decorated the back of the cabinet. Here is the before and after.

It is more than that Bill, I can pick woods and lay out, but cutting all those edges to fit nicely is where the rubber hits the road. I am not a patient person and it sure wears what little I have cutting and throwing away the pieces.
This is like some of those masterpieces, the farther away the better they look.

Ohhhhh I hear that!! Especially exotics! Some can be very "difficult" and try your patience to no end. Most American hardwoods are much easier to cut. I use a surgical scalpel, veneer saw, a good straight edge and a chisel if the pieces are small enough. A couple, three passes with the scalpel is usually enough, a light sanding with 320 or there abouts to square up the edges. If that don't get it perfect, a little wood filler, tint and artists pencils get it to the point where you have to be looking for boo-boo's to find em. Not to mention any number of jigs to make the job easier....
Anything thicker than veneers, think 3D cutting boards and its jig city....

Holy Moly, Herb. Your rejects are something I would be proud to pass off as my good stuff!
