Our Marquetry Panel

We supplied a version of the Trompe l’oeil marquetry wall art for a private customer. Designed by Sara Oliver, we created the partly opened lattice cabinet doors. Personalised objects are on the shelves to keep in with the clients’ interests and hobbies. The marquetry panel is in situ on The Chairman’s Train.

Using the wide range of veneers to their full advantage. The woods texture and grain helped us to create the 3D effect of the lattice cabinet doors. The marquetry panel is handmade in the traditional way, with all the veneers cut on the marquetry cutters donkey.

We make each of the marquetry objects separately before adding them to the shelves of the cabinets.
