« Part 4: Almost There Part 5 of "Eagle's Realm "Intarsia series no next part

Hi Everyone
Well , after about 40 hours of cutting and fitting and redesigning , I finally got the “Eagle’s Realm” intarsia project complete. Took about 3 hours today to glue in all 175 pieces and apply 2 coats of spray on satin poly.The biggest hurdle was getting the depth in the background but I got it, Whew that was tough!!! Woods used—Walnut, Holly, Spalted Beech, Spalted Sycamore, Yellowheart, Ebony, Fishtail Oak, Poplar, Lignum Vitae, Purpleheart, Afromosia, Vera wood, Peruvian Walnut, Tulipwood, Maple, Bloodwood, Pink Ivory. Fun project.
