One of the things I love doing is making parquetry furniture, namely tables.  As I have a drafting background, I use the computer to draft up a design which I print out.  I then choose my veneers and start cutting out the shapes.  I always cut the piece (using an Olfa knife and ruler) and glue it down before cutting out the next piece and gluing it down.  That way, if the pattern gets away from you, it's easier to adjust as you go along.  Once all the pieces are glued down, I sand it until I can't feel the joints.  The rest of the table gets built and assembled and then I finish the piece with a clear coat.

 

This piece has 64 individual pieces of wood in the surface of the table.

Very nice design!    I have never tried marquetry but it looks like a great way to dress up a piece of furniture.   What do you use for glue to attach the veneer?
