My interests in antiques seem to lie in the 18th century era. French and Italian styles are particularly attractive to me. Equally exciting for me is that my wife, Ronelle, enjoys similar styles. She is a huge supporter of my marquetry interests and work, always looking to see what I have done that day.
The first set of photos below show my design for a queen-sized headboard based upon the marquetry pattern from a mid-1800's French table. The carved panel was my addition to frame the marquetry for the headboard.
