It is finished. The Last Supper, 36” X 44” over 800 individual pieces. Made from several different species of wood such as Pine, Maple, Purple Heart, Oak, Red Wood, Aspen, Ebony, Walnut, Cedar, to name the ones I remember. Some pieces were stained different colors to get the effect I needed. I finished it up with 5 coats of polyurethane. This was a labor of love, working on it for the last 9 months. This is a gift for my wife who is also a pastor. It now hangs in our living room which is also our church for the time being until we find a building. Plans were from
Cherry Tree Toys. http://www.cherrytreetoys.com/Last-Supper-Intarsia-Plan-P4495.aspx

Jesus Christ is my lord and savior and I thank him for what he as done and continues to do for me and my family.

God Bless

Ray

Wow! Mighty fine job. You must really have some patience to put all that into so many pieces and make such a fine matching art-piece. Great job and subject.

Ray

Thanks for posting this wonderful piece of work.

This should be in a tabernacle of some type or kind…......

I am sure it will have a great impact on those who see it, be it your family and younger people in your home or wherever you decide to display it.

Truly wonderful.

Says so much about you.

Thanks again.

I don’t follow your religious views, but I know a great project by a master craftsman when I see it, and this is it. Awesome job.
