    Great Intarsia work Charles, considering this was your first.

    I did that same snowman several years ago, also my first and only Intarsia work so far. Still would like to do more, but haven't gotten to it. Mine didn't turn out quite as nice as yours. You did a better job sanding to give each piece more depth than I did. Nice work.

    That's a great-looking piece, Charles. If you hadn't said it was your first, I'd have guessed you had done a lot of intarsia before.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If I were selling wood art/crafts, he would definitely be on my list...especially this time of year---it is a natural.

    Enjoy,
