Hi Everyone
A few of you have expressed interest in seeing how I create the small Intarsia that I do on the tops of my boxes.This project will not be too extreme but will give you a good idea of how I work with cutting, shaping and fitting some of the tiny pieces that I work with.
This is an anniversary gift box and will allow me to use a couple of new techniques that I have been wanting to try out.
I will begin by showing the subject photo supplied by my client to use as the Intarsia on the top of the box
Stay Tuned—The fun has just begun
