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 sits in a 16” x 20” cherry frame with purpleheart inlay. Woods used so far; Walnut, Holly, Ebony, Yellowheart, Spalted Beech, Fishtail Oak,Spalted Sycamore, Lignum Vitae and Peruvian Walnut. 100 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 .
