Creating Marquetry on our Memory Boxes

Wheathills Memory Boxes are renowned for their beautiful marquetry images. But what is marquetry and how is it created?

To answer that we have written an article on how to create marquetry in the Features section of our site, but here is a taster.
For a 21st Birthday present we were commissioned to create a Memory Box incorporating a marquetry image of a steam locomotive (an old road locomotive). After consultations and sketches passing to and fro our artists and Cabinet Makers got to work.

One of the Cabinet Makers is carefully cutting out the area from the main sheet of Walnut where the marquetry piece will be inlaid.


The part finished Marquetry work is held in place by special veneer tape, awaiting the time when it is firmly secured to the box's surface.

The steam locomotive's marquetry wheel is painstakingly built up piece by piece.

  4. This is the 3rd and greatest of the three staminas that brand-name viagra apteka is readily available in. While these days you can discover common viagra apteka in doses of 40mg and even 200mg of Sildenafil per tablet computer, the 25mg, 50mg and also 100mg staminas still continue to be the ‘golden requirements’ for Sildenafil. trevisluke.splashthat.com

  5. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone! My Blog https//:www.movieforyou.sitew.org/
