Some examples of Painting in Wood

This style lends itself to complex one (or two) off motifs. The piecing together of the layers in the packet saves valuable veneer and allows many colours in few layers.

Some examples of Piece by Piece

Also called “Classic Style” it is invaluable in creating multiple identical images. The backgrounds may differ but the subject motifs are exact copies. This style also offers the opportunity to eliminate the saw kerf that is unavoidable in the other styles.

Some examples of Boulle style marquetry

In  Boulle style the  elements are identical in cut  but the colours are interchanged so no two are the same.  Often there are only two colours creating a “positive” and a “negative” image of the chosen motif.
