Product description: The motive for Godfather was taken from a central part of the King Louis XVs desk which dates back to 1769. All the details, including the musical notes (real song from Godfather move) were done completely from veneer. I spent a lot of time picking, cutting, placing, and gluing only natural wood veneer to create my marquetry. MARQUETRY, or wood decorative artistry, is considered to be one of the most difficult arts. In a traditional technique, different design elements are cut separately in an attempt to reduce a gap left by a knifes blade. As a result, perfectly fit together pieces show no visible signs of insertions and blending together, they create one solid surface. This large work of marquetry won much praise and Peoples Choice votes at the 2008 AMS National Exhibition. The art panel is covered with 2 coats of sealer and 5 coats of a high gloss port cat lacquer, sanded between coats and rubbed with 600 & 1000 wet/dry sandpaper then machine polished to a high gloss finish.

My name is Grzegorz Czarnecki. Currently I reside in Maspeth, New York, but originally I am from Poland. Ever since my youth I have had a profound interest in carpentry. The job of designing and creating all sorts of finished products from wood gave me a feeling of great satisfaction and fascination. When I was 15, I first encountered the style of marquetry.
