    Hey guys. A couple of you saw my other thread about the eagle owl, but I decided to start somewhere simply first, this time with some straight lines. :i_dunno: I worked on this off an on for a couple hours tonight, as you can see at almost 3am, I'm mostly nocturnal. :help: Anyway, here's what I got done tonight, I would say I'm about 1/3rd done with this overall, the end result is a circle. Nothing here is glued just put down with some tape.

    Thanks for looking!

    Looking at that you will do well with marquetry. Glad you decided to start small and work your way up. The inlay will be the real challenge.
    Good job! Well done! :good::good2:

    I've been backing all the veneer with blue painter's tape before doing any cutting. Do you think that is ok?

    Did a little more work on it this evening and got another 16 pieces made for it for a total of 32 so far. In the end this will be a total of 56 pieces.

    This working on that part. I've heard either contact cement or titebond cold press glue were both pretty good but am Still not sure. I'll be working on that part. :nea:

    I figured that would be the case, less fumes too! :scare3: Is it better to try to do the whole piece at one time while glueing or to do it in sections? I'm sorry for rushing ahead a little bit and not waiting for your class. :sorry:

    Well, today I realized that when I started this, the pattern I was using looks like it was made from a picture instead of a drawing, so my design was out of round and proportion, I'm going to start over and try again, this time making my own pattern with a compass and ruler so it's accurate, here we go.

    :yipee:
