This is a beautiful project. I wouldn’t know where to start on something like this.

Thanks for the post.

Scott, with all Intarsia projects you just pick a piece and cut it out. Then you cut and fit all of the other pieces so they all fit with one another (not a simple task). Grain direction is important as is grain pattern and color, most of which is a personal choice. This horse gave me some fits at first but I finally worked through it after making some firewood :)

I really want to learn intarsia. This is a great example, so thanks for sharing it with us. I have a couple of intarsia patterns collecting dust in my garage. As soon as I get through my first “craft fair” buildup, I think I will try this!
