Side project #1: Intarsia map

I came to a point where I was stuck on my table project. While pondering a solution to my current problem, I thought I would fill in the down time with something small. I once saw an intarsia map. It was pretty cool looking. I thought that would be fun to do. So I started making a map of Wisconsin, with each county a separate piece of wood. My original idea was to use local woods. Red oak, maple and willow in the south. White pine, red pine and birch in the north. I abandoned this plan and...
