If you like traditional marquetry, you will enjoy this post over on Lumberjocks, from Patrice LeJeune about his collaboration with Patrick Edwards on a series of four marquetry boxes. The blog post covers the classic methods used by Patrice, which are very interesting. It also shows the subtle variations in design for each of the four boxes. The marquetry is little short of stunning and, of course, the boxes themselves (made by Patrick and featuring full-blind dovetails on the corners), are perfectly made.
It’s very exciting to see that top quality work such as this is still admired and people are happy to pay for the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into each piece.
