This is a Intarsia I made of the first car i owned, back in 1949. I bought it for $50.00, making payments of $5.00/month.

I put a window in the backer so i can change the background picture at any time.

Awesome! It looks wonderful and the background pic really gives it that 3rd dimension.

Excellent work…the edge views show how nicely you make changes in thickness and great contours.

I also do Intarsia and appreciate great work. I do think your boy on motorcycle is your best.

Thanks for posting…
