I was pretty excited the other day when I took the cherry blossom marquetry panel out of the vacuum press. I had to wait to see the final result as had regular work the following day. This morning I was up bright and early and started removing the gum tape from the finish face. I then mixed up a batch of 1/2# cut Hock Blonde Shellac. I'm pretty pleased with the results . . . not bad for my first marquetry panel. I learned a lot that I will apply to the next panel!
