Truth be told, I’m not a fan of jigsaw puzzles.
Nevertheless, I just spent an hour after work sorting through a pile of little veneer shapes from this (and another tray of bits)
To start assembling the marquetry picture I’m working on. I’m assembling it onto low-tack shelf paper. Once I have the colors all composed, I’ll remove the parts a few at a time and sand shade them.
It only seems tedious when you’re doing it…
Even with the mix of colors, it still looks flat without sand shading. But first I have to find all of the little bits!
