Hi Everyone
This is a photo of a little Cherry Plaque that I did for a client.
Cherry plaque is 8” x 10”. The recess for the intarsia was made using a template and a small hinge mortice router bit. The wording was laser engraved
Fun little project.
Woods used; Background-Australian Lacewood, White- Holly, Pink-African Pink Ivory, Green-Argentinian Lignum Vitae, Limb-Peruvian Walnut, Black- Gabon Ebony,Yellow- SA Pau Amarillo

very nice! Intarsia projects seem to me to be under appreciated on this forum, but this one has great appeal.

That’s a wonderful memento for the special event. The owls look adorable and the wood combo is beautiful. Great job!
