I posted my 1st intarsia project, the Goldfish, here a few days ago. You can see it here.
I chose the 2 mice and the cheese for my 2nd project. It uses 4 different colored woods:
1. black ebony for the eyes
2. beech for the body of the mice
3. yellow heartwood for the cheese
4. maple for the inside of the ears and the tails
Making the 2 small tails is a little bit of a challenge. But I am used to sanding and making small parts for previous projects, so it was not that difficult for me.
If you are interested in my trials & tribulations of making this intarsia project, see my web site.
You can get Kathy Wise’s patterns and books at her web site.
