Hi Everyone
Been a while since I’ve posted any new intarsia but here is a sneak peek of my newest commission. Titled—”Eagle’s Realm” it sets in a 16” x 20” cherry frame with purpleheart inlay. Woods used so far; Walnut, Holly, Ebony, Yellowheart, Spalted Beech, Fishtail Oak. 50 pieces so far. I’m still designing the background scenery of the pattern which is the hardest part to get the proper depth . I like to shape, sand, detail carve and apply a coat of finish as I go on these type of projects. I foresee between 200 and 300 pieces depending on how elaborate the background gets. Stay tuned .
