The first three pictures are of a gift that I made for a colleague that is getting married in a few days. She is fond of golden retrievers and I decided to make her a picture of one.
This is the first intarsia pattern that I made myself. I’m relatively happy with how it turned out. There are a few things that I will do differently for the next version, mainly regarding line thickness and darkness.
The piece is made from Western Red Cedar and Walnut, with a clear lacquer finish. I enjoyed making it, and I hope you enjoy looking at it.

Beautiful piece of work and an equally good gift.
