I created this intarsia for a customer in Texas that requested that I make a kit for him of the 1953 Ford F100 truck. He sent me a photo and I designed the pattern and made the kit for him. I liked the subject picture so I decided to make a kit for myself too. The finished piece has 175 pieces from 13 different woods and is in an 11” x 14” walnut frame with holly inlay.No stains,paints or dyes are used.

Mind if I ask how you go about creating the patterns? Is it a long and tedious process?

That is just awesome. What a truck too. I used to have a ‘59 F-100 but I sold it to make more room for woodworking!

All of my patterns are drawn by hand. In the case of the truck, it was the correct size to trace the outline then the background was added to symbolize a Texas farm. Thanks for asking.

Very cool. I admire your ability to work with different woods to make such a beautiful product. I can’t even identify most to the species let alone move them to a piece of art. thanks for posting.

Having always been a Ford nut, if you are interested I would be willing to buy a copy of the pattern for this and any suggestions you have for wood types or general instruction, as I have never tried tis type of work. If you wish you can contact me at gtg366@aol.com.
