I needed a dovetail jig so set about researching options. A most rewarding project designing and laser cutting the jig which was used only once!
Magic pieces of Aromatic Cedar for the arms and Pink Ivory for the dress. The veneer was all hand cut about 1mm thick and inset using standard Marquetry techniques. The inscription Piitaa, Pooriin, Ed-ee was downloaded in Katakana script, sized and defined with a scalpel onto the top. The script definition was highlighted with graphite and hand finished, the letters routed and filled with African Blackwood sawdust/epoxy.
