Here are a few Intarsia projects I did a while back. The patterns are from Judy Gale Roberts.
The dolphines are walnut and basswood.
The manatee is cypress and Philippine mahogany.
The eagle is basswood, walnut, oak.
The swans are basswood and walnut.
The rose is cedar and walnut.

I love this type of work. If I ever get my shop built, this is something I would love to try. On you swans, did you polish the water sections more than the the swans? I noticed the light from the flash didn’t extend over to the swan.

WWW, yes, I polished the water portion to make it glossier and to make it look realistic.

Thanks everyone for your support and nice comments. It’s great to have a place to meet fellow woodworkers.
