This is my newest Custom Intarsia project.
My client wanted a small bookshelf made from cherry with the custom Intarsia inlayed on the ends of the uprights. He sent a subject photo for the intarsia and I took it from there. I had to make this project easy to disassemble for shipping purposes and easy for the client to re-assemble so I used screws and alignment dowels. I turned little Peruvian walnut buttons to cover the screw holes. The mirror image Intarsia for each side consist of 135 pieces from 13 different woods. Client lives in Switzerland.
Fun project
