This was a fun one to make because I love to add real life things into my projects to make them look more real. Using some old rusty chains, hooks, some old rope with the the fence made from our old deck we tore down last year. I did not sand or do anything to the old deck to make it look like an old fence. I also tried to make the shadows work for the piece and not make it so precise. It also let me practice some carving with the fingers, horses eyes, and the mans face. Hope y’all like it.

It is 24×18 and is made out of 19 different woods for color with no stains used. It has 140 different pieces and is finished in clear satin. The wood used were babinga, cherry, grinidillio, purple heart, osage, curly maple, american walnut, english walnut, palm, weathered pine, aspen, chechen, brazilian rosewood, lace wood, spalted tamerin, lignum, cortez, ebony, cocobola.

Thanks for Looking!

Starting to wonder if there’s nothing you can’t do. A wonderful job you’ve done here.

Awesome job on this project. I’m always amazed by how many different colors of wood exist, just blows me away. Nice to have options. The work on the chain is terrific ;-), and rope, I think you made that. I have a friend who’s won Ribbons (1st,2nd,3rd) for his Intarsia work at the Calgary Stampede, he’s amazing, but your better. Wow !

I also sent him the link to this project.
