Penciled Outline

NORTH WIND
It all begins with an outline.

SHOP OWNER: Jerry Cousins
LOCATION: Weaverville, CA

    This is my latest marquetry project, a "rococo" face I call "North Wind". It all starts with this penciled outline that gets transferred onto the wood veneer.

    The woods are: background - basswood,  the beard, top curls, and surround - la pacho,  cheeks and forehead - birds eye maple,  eyes - gabon and macassar ebony,  eyebrows - zebra,  lips - redheart,  horns - koa,  upper leaves - canary,  and the frame - alder.
