I have done probably 20 of these segmentations. They are all cut from 1-x-12 Poplar and measure around 12-x-12. They are cut from a pattern, stained and reassembled with a slight 3D effect that was surprising the first time I assembled one. The book is called Animal Portraits in Wood by Neal Moore. I learned a lot about intricate cutting in thicker wood with these guys. I am currently putting the lion portrait on the lid of a 7-x-11 Cherry keepsake box. The lion’s head is around 5-1/2-x-6 on the box lid. I have been scrolling for a little over three years and I have tried to complete a variety of projects involving segmentation, Intarsia, fretwork and box making. I enjoy them all and continue to soak up knowledge everywhere I can.

Hi Ted,

How are you doing? I think we met at Midwest woodworkers in the art show. I was in the booth right next to you.

You do some very beautiful work. Welcome to Lumberjocks. I think you will like it here, it can be very addictive!

Nice work Ted. Are the pieces beveled together as in marquetry for fit? Love the realism, almost think you could pet them.

Hello ted
A very good work Ted
I like this technic for the contrast between differents woods

A lot of work, a lot of precision and a lot of patience and the result is so good that you know for why you have worked

Thanks for sharing
