  • Marquetry

    It is probably just that simple. Vary your wood sampling of course so you aren't using the same grain in every piece. Just remember that if you want it to look like real marquetry, it can't be absolutely perfect. Even machine assisted inlays have a bit of a gap here and there. When using computers to illustrate hand crafts it's often hard to remember to put in the faults.

        The point at which no one is able to make a living in a once thriving profession. Your ''secondary skill'' definition would be that cliff.

        There is no ''general rule''

        The idea is not to have rivers running through it. Sometimes you have to suggest to the client that they might have to change a word here and there (as long as...

        I predict that the worse case scenario is graphic design reduced to secondary skill status.

        What is ''the cliff?''
