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
