Hi guys here is the desk I just finish for my wife, it measure 52" long x 24" deep x 30 1/2" high, the main woods are cherry and maple, the inlay is wenge and the marquetry are bubinga, mahogany and poplar, I finished with two coats of Danish oil, four coats of minwax polyurethane and wax. Next project is a bed for my son.
All comments are welcome

Thank you guys for your comments.
The veneers was 3/64 thick, I cut it on my scroll saw, then glued it in to a 1/8 thick pice of maple, rout out the the pocket and then glued the marquetry on it and finished with the wenge around it.


The desk is gorgeous! If I made it (not a chance since I don’t have your talent), I wouldn’t let anyone use it without putting a glass over that beautiful work.

You are really talented.

It is beautiful indeed. The marquetry is excellent.

Could you give more details about the marquetry? Like the veneer thickness, the cutting process and the embedding technique.
