Art nouveau cabinet – WIP

Author: Виктория, June 5, 2013 в Uncategorized

Hooray! I’m back to making art nouveau furniture. More than happy about it, though it means a lot of marquetry, carving, veneering, etc.

Drafting was really fast, I finished it in a couple of days. I took the original from one of Majorelle’s cabinets, found this one on the auction’s sites.

For now, I finished sides (they are veneered with madrone wood) and one marquetry panel for the door. And I’ll need one more, and one more carved panel.

It’s kinda hard to see anything on this panel tight now, but trust me, it’s going to be just fine, though I always worry about the result.

I used about five types of veneer here, lots of work, but it was worth it! The butterfly (if you can spot it;) ) made of mother of pearl.

I wish I could make it faster, but I have another project to work on (the worst part – I can’t show it to you).

First experience with marquetry

Author: Виктория, April 16, 2010 в Uncategorized

I always wanted to give it a try, so yesterday I took one of the clipart art nouveau ornaments. The result:

From Little Boxes

Not perfect. To my opinion – meh:)
But that’s where I love practice, I found out some mistakes that I hope I won’t make in the future – how to cut the pieces, choice of the right glue and finishing. Besides I was too lazy to trace the picture, so the edges are not good.
 It was supposed to be one side of the bed for my roombox. The light border shouldn’t be seen actually – I was planning it to be dark.  Well, considering the first experience I’m not sure I’ll use this one – I hope to make couple more to make sure it looks good for using with the bed.
