Wooden mosaic - inlay or marquetry?

Florentine mosaic, but only from wood!

Florentine mosaic made of wood. Master Blinov AndreyIn the company "Bear log - good houses of cedar" love and know a lot about wood. Our creative workshop headed by Andrey Blinov (in the picture) learned how to make an unusual and amazing mosaic of wood, the analogue of which we have not yet seen, which will satisfy the most sophisticated connoisseur of wooden furniture!

We did not find the correct name for our wooden mosaic technique! It includes several well-known methods - inlays, marquetry and Florentine mosaics, the only material is the end cuts made of wood that have been pre-dried to avoid cracking. As a rule, these are different Siberian wood species, such as:

  • cedar - light wood;
  • larch - is saturated with yellow or has a reddish tint. A feature of larch is sapwood, which is without annual rings;
  • juniper - yellow, turning into a brown color gamut and practically associated annual rings;
  • manzhursky nut;
  • Pine.

Small elements, most of which are no larger than a centimeter in length and width, are carefully selected by the master in structure and color, cut out with a jigsaw according to a given sketch of the desired image and are glued to the plywood base. In some cases, the elements can stick to each other only along the ends, without the base. In this case, a two-sided picture is obtained, each side of which will differ from each other.

  • The thickness of the blank for the mosaic - the saw cut from wood is only 10 mm.
  • Only natural (no dyes) wood color.
  • The hard work to create a mosaic, the size of a meter per meter takes up to one month.
  • The total length of the perimeter of all elements in a square meter of mosaic made of wood can reach up to 800 meters
