Nice job, I tried intarsia a few years ago. I didn’t close to the results you have. 50 pieces was my max project. I got into wood carving its a lot easier. Very nice work

Very nice. How big is it? I’m baffled at the 100 hours, but it looks worth it. Nice work

Earlier I posted a Holy Family intarsia. I would be interested in finding out who the artist was who designed the pattern. If there is anyone out there who would know this information I would appreciate hearing from you.
