I made this Intarsia for my Grandson, he plays in a small band.

The pattern was in the 2011 Holiday issue of SSW&C Magazine.

Woods used, starting from the left:

Soft Maple and Cherry, Painted to match my Grandson’s guitar.
Yellow Heart, Maple & Leopard (Lacewood)
Red Plum, Cherry & Walnut
Purple Heart, & Wenge
Holly, Walnut & Cherry
Padauk & Black Walnut
Zebra & Walnut
Soft Maple & Walnut

Finished it with Deft, Satin spray.

that’s Wonderful! What are the dimensions? Is it meant as wall decor, or is the size of a pin? it’s beautiful!
