Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.
