I choked the black back some more so it would be easier to pencil in individual pieces of wood. A full scale pdf is here.

At one point in this, TopamaxSurvivor, I thought the same thing. She already has a fine line contour of the outside shape. I’ve never done intarsia, but at minimum with the pdf you can print as many first generation, full scale digital prints as you want. With a little effort you could print in tiles at scale to have something to paste to the wood you’ll cut out. Or you could print a full scale print, pen in details and make copies (or a scan) of that.
With enough fiddling around you wouldn’t be cutting wood ‘til next November :^}
Anyway, I had fun on the a snowy indoors day even if it was a boondoggle.
