In some small way, I hope this lets the people who put their lives on the line to protect us know that we appreciate what they do for us. In talking to some people while making this, it seems some forget that Police Officers are not just there on the highway to give us a speeding ticket. When they come on duty they could give their life to keep us safe and as in my previous pieces with the military and fire dept. it puts me in awe of their courage. I hope that this piece will give us all a pause for thought, because this pattern was made from an actual picture of a fallen police officer’s funeral.

It is 22”x161/2”, has 287 different pieces, and is made out of 18 different woods. No stains were used to achieve colors and it is finished in satin. It was made with cherry, cocobola, ebony, aspen, english walnut, blood wood, babinga, spalted tamerin, wenge, ash, curly maple, osage, black palm, american walnut, yellow heart, purple heart, pauduck, blue pine.

Thanks for looking.

Speechless…..what a great piece of art. Is this for someone special or just a “I wanted to do it” project?

Kory, one of my favorite e-mails to receive is the notification that you are posting a new intarsia piece. Yet another masterpiece that is uniquely your style of intarsia. Which technique did you use for the lettering on the frame?

You can take what everyone else has said and put it in here for my comment. They’ve said it very well how I feel about your piece here. I’m always so impressed with your work. If I did intarsia, you would be my inspiration and my goal to be as good as you are.
