Shop Marquetry Desk


In these times we need something to smile about. This is another marquetry folly of mine in the form of a work desk for the marquetry room in my shop. It features marquetry bouquets and parquetry from the work of Jean Henri Riesener..
More importantly it will make me smile every time I go into the room.

Thanks for looking,

Stay well everyone!

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.


Wow! Lots of detail. Nice work!

Beautiful Paul! The detail is amazing



Your work never ceases to amaze us. Your shop furniture is fit for a king!


“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Benjamin Franklin


This is taking your Marquetry to a Higher Level for SHOP projects.


Thank you!

Have Fun! ...

You’re on another level Paul….top level.

Paul, every time I see this “shop desk”, I just can’t believe that it lives in your SHOP! (I would keep this in my living room) You raise the bar always, and inspire me with every project.

Amor Vincit Omnia

Beautiful Desk Paul, now you will be inspired everyday that you work on your marquetry.
