Inspiration Gallery: Marquetry

I don’t know about you, but I adore marquetry, the art of wood veneer inlay. This is a classic sort of pattern with an urn and flowers and scrolls and modified Greek keys. I love it.

Or maybe you’d prefer something more like…

Inspired yet? Interested?  Look around. You’ll probably see more marquetry than you ever thought was out there.
