A while back, when I was starting out with veneering, I went through a brief “box on stand” phase where I experimented with grain matching, hinge options, and some of my first marquetry. This one is an MDF box with Western Maple and Wenge legs and shop cut veneers in the same woods. The “marquetry” on this one was done with a router and a bushing set.
The story goes that it was to be a Maple piece with just a few dark accents but when I was dabbing on the dark veneer I accidentally knocked over the can and it just got all over everything. :-)
There are a couple more I may post.
Thanks for looking
