I found an image of a horse head on line and made this intarsia image of it. It is made of Oak, Pine, Mahogany, Mesquite and Ebony and is 21” tall I used 1/4” ply for backer board and made a hanger for it of old band saw blade. The woods are all 3/8” thick. I used a spray can from Walmart “triple Thick Glaze” as a finish.

I wish I had your ability to make something like this. You’re an artist and a craftsman.
