This one took a while because it is about 425 pieces and was a little out of the norm for me. Most of the work I do is with shaping the pieces in curves to make it look right, but on this one I worked A LOT with angles instead. It is hard to see in the pictures but I really tried to give the train the right angles to give it the depth (hope it worked). The thickness of the wood used range from 1 ¾ thick down to ¼ and I used about 20 different kinds of woods to create the colors. I made the pattern from a picture I found on the internet and, like usual, I probably made the pattern more difficult than it needed to be.

It stands 26 inches tall by 16 inches wide 2 inches thick. The woods used were aspen, seomareaba, hackaberry, wenge, Piesce, palm, oak, yellow heart, blood wood, cocobolo, ebony, babinga, curly maple, western cedar, osage, walnut, koa, mahogany, cortez, purple heart. It was finished in satin and again no stains were used to achieve colors.

Thanks for looking and I hope it turned out ok.

I love the piece, It’sabsolutely beautiful!
I’m curious about the name though. What does the train have to do with HD?

Thanks for the comments and as for the name I couldn’t think of a name and I thought train depot and it’s for your home?? Might have to change it.

Really nicely done Kory.
If by “angles to give it depth” you refer to perspective, then I’d say you aced it.
It looks right.

Intarsia has never really grabbed me and sucked me in like this one. Great perspective. Very nice.
