My version of a pattern by Kathy Wise. Sometimes I like to use many different kinds of woods for contrast. I used 16 different woods for this piece. I use all natural woods with no stains. The only time I have ever used a stain was for an American Flag (blue). I have been doing Intarsia for 2 years now and never been happier to find something that I love doing.

Great job on that one! One of the best eagles ever. Great wood selection, and craftsmanship.

Thank you all for the kind comments. I really have enjoyed looking at all the beautiful wood projects that are shown at Lumberjocks. There is nothing more beautiful than wood and for so many people to have such great talent in using wood, is a joy.

Beautiful, beautiful work. I could not agree with you more, once you get intarsia in your veins it’s hard to get it out. I agree with the wood deal also. For me the greatest joy out of the art is finding the right colored wood. I also don’t use stain or paint ,(well I HAVE before) but that’s where I find my joy. I think its the thrill of the hunt (for the right wood) great piece. Thanks for sharing!

Hey Harv !.. Beautiful work… All Intarsia work looks so bland until you put the finish on them, and boy do they POP with color… Love your choices of woods… Very well done.. thankyou for posting.
