    Hi Seamas,

    You're right on all counts. Right now I expanded the picture over two folds to take up space for now. Yes, you would only see a part of her face on the cover. My problem is that...

    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.
