First intarsia 8 years ago. Then later decided to put on a cornice. Rose is cedar and poplar. Cornice is 6’ across made of 15 species of wood going out from center. I did cheat and cut each adjoining piece by stack cutting!! The pieces across the front are mounted on plywood, then attached to Cherry brackets on the end. Finished in satin lacquer.

-- Dee2, OH Aromatherapy....fresh cut wood!!
