Sue and I spent the weekend in a very nice hotel in Boscastle, Cornwall In the bathroom there was this intarsia picture on the wall, about 450 mm wide in size.

Just thought you might appreciate seeing it.

I have seen these type of woodworking at craft fairs, and cannot imagine how it is done. It is art in itself. Thanks for sharing.

This is unique. The normal interasia is done piece by piece as per wood tone but above is done with carving per object then mixed up to form the big picture. I like the clams shell and the sea weeds.

Thanx for taking your time to share it ! It’s nicely done even though it’s not up to your standards.
