My sister in law is from Kansas… and my brother was stationed at Ft Riley years ago. I will have to ask her if she knows of any places to get wood.. not wheat… wood. :) Your intarsia is lovely. You did a nice refinish job on the table and you can scratch 2 things off your honey dew list now. That means more time for intarsia when the wood is located. :)

Michael, my sister-in-law called her uncle in Kansas last night. The uncle lives near the back of the base. :) He is going to do some looking around and see if he can find some wood for you. Hopefully he can locate something and soon… so you can get back to your stress relieving Intarsia. :) I will let you know as soon as I hear anything… :) Until then kiss the kids and be safe. :) oooo- rah! (I live with a Nam Vet Marine… LOL)

Well the current project calls for Black Walnut, Basswood, spanish cedar, Bloodwood, Sycamore, Canarywood, Cherry and Wenge. lol Its a very big project too. As far as the process intarsia is a woodworking technique that uses varied shapes, sizes and species of wood that are fitted together to create a 3-dimensional, mosaic-like picture. Intarsia is created through the selection of different types of wood, using their natural grain pattern and color (but can involve the use of stains and dyes) to create variations in the pattern. After selecting the specific woods to be used within the pattern, each piece of wood is then individually cut, shaped, and sanded. Sometimes, additional pieces of plywood are used to raise areas of the pattern to create more depth. Once the individual pieces are finished, they are fit together like a jig-saw puzzle and glued to a piece of wood backing (baltic birch, plywood). The backing is then cut to the outline shape of the final product. Once the glue holding the individual pieces of wood on the backing is set, a final layer of finish is applied to complete the project. Thanks for the post socalwood.
