This columbine was featured in the Summer 2012 Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazine. Photos show a few of the steps involved in creating this intarsia columbine that I designed.

Lee – it’s 20” tall by about 11 1/2” wide. It could easily be made larger. Because of the small pieces in it – I wouldn’t recommend it being made any smaller.
