ok, first of all this is not true intarsia( before the intarsia genie zaps me) I took four different types of wood and made 11×14x 1/4 sheets of each one, then temporarily stuck them together with spray adhesive. After drawing my own pattern i put it on the top and started cutting. Keep all the pieces for each horse together and when you are done cutting lay them out on luan plywood and mix and match till you get what you want. Some of them will look a little wierd but you can always stain or dye the wood to get a small change. After you get the layout you want sand the edges to give them a little roundover and add depth. Use on boxes ,benches, cavinet doors, or just put in frames. TIP, after drawing your pattern or whatever make a couple extra copies in case you need to cut a few pieces, they should be the same size.
