Is there anyone in this group that does micro woodworking? Questions I’d like to ask are… what kind of tools do you use? How complex is it? What kind of market is there for your projects?
If others have questions to add please do so. I find this very interesting

Wow!! I never knew their was such a thing. That sure interesting. However, for myself my eyesight is terrible, I wish I had the sight I did as a young pathfinder in the airborne, I’d be right into that.

I’ve made a few tiny lidded boxes …… but I was just fooling around.

The one with the marquetry (spades hearts diamonds clubs) is 4mm X 5mm X 6mm high.

Shipwright thats just crazy awesome. Im hoping there are others on here that do this.

Here’s a better pic. It looks pretty rough but the material is only 1/42" thick. As I said, just fooling around.

Now that’s micro!

I guess you first have to buy a micro table saw and micro planer before you can start. LOL

Shipwright…that is INSANE!

And that toolbox…well…I am just speechless.

I once made a couple of tiny turned boxes, much easier to turn one than assemble a micro marquetry box. The brass “grail” fits inside.

The most difficult aspect of this one was not dropping the lid when parting it off from the lathe. Once it hit the bench or floor is was lost forever. The diameter of this one is 0.009" or about three times the thickness of an average sheet of paper.
