I thought it would be fun to make a intarsia piece of the church where I on every Friday evening practice on my euphonium with the local wind band. There was a renovation and I could get the Wenge that was left for free. Well for free? As reward I made this piece. I call it intarsia, but I,m not sure this is correct. When you think it isn,t please let me know. The scale is 1:10, and that means a piece of about 1×1mtr. (40×40”) The types of wood I used are: Parana pine, Wenge, Ash, Oak, Auwora and Mahogany.

That is really amazing. I’m assuming you started with a hardwood plywood basic shape, then glued each brick, etc. to it. As large as it is, it’s my guess it will find a home in the church at some point.

Wow, what detail. You must have sufficient patience to complete work like this. Well done. They don’t call it “A labor of love” for nothing.
