Archer Marquetry Panel

This small panel is approximately 10″ x 12″.  It is a stylized ancient archer and gazelle.  It consists of a number of types of veneer on a maple background.  I designed and fabricated it while enrolled in my first Marquetry class with Paul Schurch in 2001.  The photos here show the various stages of construction from design to fabrication.  The veneer thickness is approximately 20 thousandanths of an inch.  For this reason, sanding and finishing have to be done extremely carefully.
