Hello to everyone,

Due to a work injury I have been out of commission since May, after two surgeries and ALOT of physical therapy I can spend a little time in the shop. I wanted to ease back into things, so I used a Judy Gale pattern that I had from a long time ago (I gave the first one away and my wife has wanted another one for herself ever sense then).

It was made from cypress, mahogany, aspen, ebony, cherry, walnut, lace wood, yellow heart, spalted tameren, curly maple, and wenge. It was finished in a satin.

Thanks for looking!

Hey Kory, I am sorry to hear about your injury. I hope you will recover completely. I missed your Intarsia projects so it is good to hear that you are back in the shop. The lion is absolutely stunning. You do great work.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
