This intarsia piece is the white country church with steeple. The church is 19½” x 16” and has 70 pieces.
Wood is Western Red Cedar and aspen and is finished with Old Masters Clear Finish gel varnish. I used a wood burner on the steeple and the horizontal lines on the church building. I made a frame out of trim and hung the piece in our living room.

This is my favorite intarsia work.
