I’m probably three hours into assembling this marquetry picture, and it’s definitely kicking my butt. It’s some kind of sadistic jigsaw puzzle created by a psychopathic game designer. Imagine a puzzle where all of the parts are the same color, and are so small you need to use tweezers. Now mix seven different colors of the same puzzle, and remove a half dozen critical parts.
But I’m so close to moving on to the next step. I have probably six more parts to find…or re-make, then I can start the sand shading process. We’ll see if I have the patience to work on this more today.
Here is a close up of the problem area. Maybe I can get my wife and son to comb through the remaining parts one more time before I have to resort to re-making these parts.
