This is a little different take on your typical Intarsia piece. I wanted to turn the original pattern into a stand alone piece, which was a bit challenging but it really was a fun piece to make. The original design (by Kathy Wise) is shown in the last picture. I wrapped the stem and leaves around the back to give make it three dimensional.

The woods used are as follows: The Cross itself is Walnut. The lily is made from Yellow Heart, Aspen, Purple Heart and Cherry. The stem is Mahogany, the leaves are Poplar. The base is Walnut and Butternut and it stands 16” tall.

Very well done, this work is sufficiently different from Cathy Wise for you to claim it as an original work and yes you are correct to ascribe the original concept to Cathy Wise.

Nice work and thank you for sharing it,

Very, very nice. I like the idea of making it more dimensional. I will have to try that on an upcoming intarsia project. Great wood choices also, quite realistic.

I agree with the above, your Lily turned out better than the original pattern called for. Great Job, looks fantastic.
