    My Newest Intarsia Box

    Hi Everyone
    HAPPY NEW YEAR
    Here are a few WIP pictures of my newest Intarsia Box Commission.
    I had to modify my original Buffalo Box pattern to add the logo on the top and the little dog and cat at the bottom.
    This is my original Buffalo Box.

    Making good progress on the Intarsia. Got the fence cut and inlaid with all of the background pieces. got the logo and tree in place, added the pasture pieces and the water. I added the dime to show the scale of the pieces I'm working with.
    Having fun now!!
    85 pieces so far.
    Woods used;Sky-tulipwood, Mountains-cocobolo,Pasture-poplar, Fence-cherry, Tree-palo santos, Shore line-mahogany, Water-blue mahoe, Logo- holly and ebony

    Its going to probably sound silly but the fence really sells it for me on the first one[1] and it looks like the second one will be a winner as well.

    [1] not that the other elements aren't well done or unnecessary but the fence just ties it together somehow.

    Thanks for the comments guys.
    Yesterday I got the background done along with replacing a few pieces that didn't quite fit right. Up to 100 pieces. Cold in the shop today so I will work on the Buffalo tomorrow.
