« Part 9: Hummingbird Day 9 Part 10 of Intarsia series Part 11: Lilly Cross Day 1 »

Well, it’s finally done!! I have learned a lot making this project, probably the biggest lesson has been patience. Most of my projects don’t take this long to make so it has been a very different experience for me, but I will admit I’m hooked! This project has been challenging, at times frustrating, but it has been fun and I really did enjoy making it. I’m pretty sure Intarsia is definitely going to be a new direction in my wood working future.

I finished it with five coats of Deft Semi Gloss Spray Lacquer. The overall size ended up being approx. 16” in diameter.

Please let me know what you think of it.

Thanks for following this project.

Bob, I think your Intarsia turned out fantastic!!! I like your choice of woods and you did a great job cutting and shaping the pieces.

Can’t wait to see your next piece.

Looks great. I would have assumed you were doing this for many years. The wood selection for the bird and flower are superb.

You presented a wonderful step by step Intarsia blog Bob. There is almost nothing on youtube that comes close to explaining the process like you just did. Thank you!! The project came out beautifully. You have encouraged me to jump in with both feet. I also enjoyed you Intarsia class.

Thanks L2L, I’m very happy that you enjoyed the tutorial. When you do jump in, be prepared to love it! If I ever get over my camera shyness, I might start doing actual intarsia videos.
