This pattern came out of the book by Kathy Wise, “Intarsia, Woodworking For Beginners”. My Nephews birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and he loves Trains, so I thought I would give this a go. This is my first attempt at anything that resembles Intarsia, even though I don’t really consider this Intarsia, more segmentation even though it did come out of an Intarsia book, so not sure what to call it.
Here are some more pictures of it.
The woods I used were Bloodwood, Walnut, White Oak, Purple Heart, Blue Pine, Maple, Poplar and Baltic Birch Ply for the backer. I was very intimidated with starting this project, but once I started it was really fun, I’m now trying to figure out what project will be next and I’m ready to take on one that is a little more complicated than this one was.
I would love to hear your thoughts, just leave a comment below.
