Hi Everyone
Happy New Year
Here are a few photos of my newest commissioned Intarsia jewelry box. The box is made from Walnut with Holly accents and measures 6” x 8” x 4”.
The Intarsia is 115 pieces from 11 different woods.
Fun Stuff!!

Beautiful work on the intarsia. You really have a great talent. I admire your ability to cut and fit such small pieces into your designs. Look forward to seeing your future pieces and your work in process progression shots on the other scrolling forum.
