This is my latest Intarsia project. It is another pattern by Kathy Wise. The woods I used are Bolivian Rosewood for the main body, Wenge for the Mane and Tail, Black walnut for part of the legs and Mesquite for the base.

Bolivian Rosewood!, that’s some beautiful wood and you put it to good use. Very nice! That’s one gorgeous horse, great details.

Harv:
That is fantastic. Your use of the wood grain makes it appear that the muscles on the horse are rippling.
Well done.
What was your finishing process for this masterpiece?
