Did I miss something…

With the marquetry panels shipped out, it came to my attention that one did not contain its care tag. This is typically a single page write-up that I include with all of my pieces explaining when and where it was made, materials used, and care and repair instructions. Since these items stand to survive beyond their original owner, if properly cared for, it helps the next woodworker to know with what they’re dealing. At least that’s the intent…

On the chance that this wasn’t an isolated case (sorry), I thought I’d post a PDF copy of that document here.

For a custom client piece, this page gets printed (in a reduced format), laminated, then fastened to it in an inconspicuous area (which the patron is unlikely to encounter in “normal” use) with double-stick tape. I also hand them a full-sized version during delivery. With luck, it won’t get tossed aside, and ignored like almost every product instruction sheet!
