The complexity of the design
We are able to achieve a great level of detail in a work of marquetry,
and are practiced at doing very difficult and complex designs. We also find that
if you consider a few key concepts you can lower the end cost of your product.
Number of Parts and Detail
Generally, fewer parts make for an easier assembly. You can design really small detailed parts in marquetry,
but if you can't see them from 3 ft consider if they are necessary. Larger elements are easier to produce
and will often give you the desired effect.
(See example above)
One element of complexity has to do with how many parts will rest against each other, or interlock.
