This was my third intarsia project. A birthday present for my wife. Also this time I have made it without a scrollsaw. I used a bandsaw and some sanders and also some hand tools. It still does not fit 100% but it’s been better than the last time and I am more than satisfied.

Thanks for watching.

Your eye for detail that you have put into your trucks is a great asset here. Your wife must be very happy that your latest project was for her? LOL! Nicely done. Looking forward TO THE NEXT STEP.

Your attention to detail is mind boggling. There are too many details to point out but the bonnet on the girl is just outstanding as is the rest of it.
Not that it makes any difference to anybody but I am officially jealous.
