This is one I made for a very good friend stationed in Kansas. It was a fairly simple pattern from Judy Roberts. He was asking when I would make him a piece of his own. I kept telling him that I had not found the right design for him. When I saw this one I knew it was the perfect one for him. I love him to death, but it fit his personality to a tee. I gave it to him and he thought it was great, he told me he would was going to put it in his living room. His new wife disagrees and I know she will win that battle, but it meant a lot that he liked so much. He even agreed that it was perfectly suited to him and his personality lol.

It was made from walnut, cherry, wenge, aspen, and curly maple.

Very unusual and well made! Something like this could have gone either way but I’m glad he liked it!

This is awesome!

“Fairly Simple”??? I think not – I see at least two dozen pieces in this. I KNOW that is not a lot for detailed intarsia, but it surely isn’t “Simple”. :-)

This is so unique and detailed – I LOVE it and would hang it in my living room as well.

I had a friend remark that there are more horses’ rear ends than there are horses. Love the intarsia project and the friendly way it was made.

The joke is defined as a good joke, when you present things from an unexpected angle which the listener or the viewer did not thought about it. That what you did here. Nice job.
