A nice little intarsia piece I did last year on commission from a photo provided my Millies owner. All the colors are natural wood with three coats of danish oil to bring out the grains and protect the wood. This one is about 9 inches.
Woods used: Pine, poplar, fir, ebony, mahogany, rosewood, walnut, and aspen.
I’ve never worked from a purchased pattern, instead I make all my patterns myself and try not to make copies unless it is part of the commission. I prefer them to be one of a kind. I also do much more shaping and ad in extra glue steps in order to shape two woods together (see the eyes and upper jaw for examples).
-- I love dogs. People, not so much.
