Desk with Lion Marquetry


This is a desk I made for myself. I love lions so I decided to add marquetry to and asian style desk. The majority of the desk is veneered with Wenge, the top is made out of solid Padauk. The front lion king has just over 300 pieces of veneer, the background veneer is Quilted Maple, Laurel Burl, & Ziricote. Thank you for looking!!!

I love the style of this desk and the marquetry is superb! How do you cut the veneer for the marquetry?
