Found It

I picked through the extra parts — luckily not all of the ones in this pile — and found five of the last six parts of the rose marquetry.  Then my wife came out to help.  She told me I was insane to do this, then promptly found the last part I needed.

I’m going to leave this project alone the rest of the weekend to clear my head.  It’s down hill from here anyway, sand shading, re-assembly, glue up, mastic, etc, etc.

This is the pile of left over chaff.  The main lesson in this project is better part organization.  I did much better this time, but next I'll do even better in terms of keeping parts related to each other.

Complete picture dry-assembled.  Sand shading is next to add depth.

  1. Awesome! LOL…that’s about the same level of support I get from my wife.

    Just a thought…my wife used to be into jigsaw puzzles. The 5k piece kind. Took her days on end to get one together. Once in a while I would hide a piece. She would get done, except for the last piece and go nuts looking for it. I would come in and do a last look for it and magically find it. Not saying that is what happened here, but…

    The piece is looking amazing. Can’t wait to see it come alive with the sand shading.

    This is the best yet. All that practice really pays off. Great work.
