2017 Oct – Marquetry on Media Center

After buying a new Smart TV, I decided that I should make a new media center to put it on. I thought it would be a good opportunity to apply marquetry to the four front sliding doors.

I had a number of sheets of Tamo Ash and a few pieces of Jarrah (from Joe Veneers ). After a discussion with my wife Bonnie, we settle on a simple design based on a Rennie Mackintosh design.

2016 June Maple Leaf Sofa Table

In the fall of 2015 I started a cabinet making course at our local Technical College SAIT (Southern Alberta Institute of Technology).  It was a four session course which end in May 2016.  The final project was to make a sofa table out of Beech wood.

I decided to make a Marquetry picture to inlay into the top of the table. After giving the subject some thought I settled on making a picture of maple leaves. See: Applied Marquetry
