I enjoyed my long weekend by working on a few projects. I completed this Lion Intarsia piece that I have been wanting to do for quite some time. I started this piece by doing the face first, then the mane. I cut out all of the pieces in the face and then the hair on the top of the head and worked around the face clockwise. Once I finished cutting everything out, I began the sanding and reassembeling process. I couldnt think of a better way to spend my weekend. This piece was made with no customer in mind, so it is for sale. Message me if you are interested.

Nice piece Chris. I agree with you, Intarsia is really a relaxing art form.

Great piece as usual. Like more this one because he’s the king of the jungle. Impressive skills you have.
