Thanks for the theme Debbie.
To get some baseline information out there on marquetry and cutting styles I’ve resurrected my old blog series on the subject. The projects shown are mostly pretty old and in many cases I do things differently now but as a description of the various styles, I think they work.
Anything that increases interest and participation in marquetry is a good thing. :-)

I’m more likely to accept tips than to give them at this point in my very short marquetry career, but I’m very pleased that WW is facilitating some discussion on the subject.
