This is a project I desided to do while I was on leave at my father-in-laws house. I used his new saw which I love but just dont have the money for. I have done a few Intarsia projects but this was my favorite because it was the first project I have done where I didnt need to use Epoxy to fill spots or gaps. This is one of judys patterns but I changed it in some areas and I changed up the wood choices. My father-in-law showed me alot of different things I could do to improve my woodworking and different ways to improve my patterns. I used all his advice and took my time to add more detail to my work. I hope you enjoy this Intarsia peice as much as I did in makeing it. thanks

Very nice bit of intarsia sculpture, your choice of wood make it realistic. Is the model you used to hold the
mule deer bashful, or is she just sending us a silent message? Thank you for sharing.

Very nice work, I like it. How much does it rise from the back? What kind of saw was it that you used?

Bear pie I didnt have to use any risers, I started with 1 inch wood but the ears,eyes and lower jaw were 2 inch so I had to do alot of sanding to even everything out and then more sanding to round out the ears and get the 3d look. The saw I used was an excalibur. They are expensive but I now know, worth every dime lol.
Thanks Kory I am learning from the best LOL. You have giving me alot of help. :) Thanks also Ken… I love Intarsia also its like makeing a big 3d puzzle and the only thing that limits the peice is your imagination.

Very nice piece, Michael. I’ve also done two intarsia pieces to date, but I’m still a ‘newbie’ scroller.
