Made this for the love of my life – that’s her home. Was my first attempt at intarsia – and I made a few errors. But overall, I’m pleased as was she. Each piece is one of the provinces.

Stock: Light color – African Mahogany
Stock: Tall pieces – Zebrawood
Stock: Dark pieces – Lacewood
Stock: Really dark pieces (Swaziland and Lesotho – separate countries inside SA) – Bolivian Rosewood
Stock: Backing – 1/4” Baltic Birch ply.
Finish: Teak oil

A nice way to have a reminder of home. Beautiful woods.
