« Part 2: Box Glue-up Part 3 of Buffalo Box series Part 4: Beginning the intarsia »

I will start by creating the scaled background for the intarsia. Using Word office 2007 I did the 6” x 8” pattern sheet that fits into the top recess of the box lid and put the oval 1/2 ” from the edges.

These are the subject photos that I will use for the intarsia. The first pic is from Buffalo Jack’s ranch in NC.

This is the first draft of the hand drawn pattern that I made. As you can see, there will be lots of tiny pieces that will test my scrolling skills.

Time to create the intarsia of the Custom Buffalo Box

Great. I’m going to make me a box this weekend if everything works out. Can’t wait to see the next part. Where in NC is this place? I know of a place in Ashe Co. where a guy has some buffalo just outside of West Jefferson.
