Hello LumberJocks…

Also on the side I do a little bit of carving to go with my Intarsia.

I have been making Intarsia pieces for over 30 years now. Started slow with one or two per year, now that I am retired I am in my woodshop just about every day of the week. Now I make them for my family since my walls are running out of space. I believe in not rushing anything. If the piece doesn’t fit just right I will take the time to fit it in perfectly.

Hope you enjoy viewing my work.
Thank you

-- Captain Intarsia

Very nice stylized carving. Love the 2 different colors of wood.

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

This is gorgeous.

Would you mind if I reproduced something similar?

This is a beautiful piece of art work.
