    This is the top section of a fairly large frame (24" x 30") made from cherry with the Custom Intarsia Inlay using Maple , Purpleheart, and Lignum Vitae (Green).
    I used a hinge mortising router bit and 1/2" plywood pattern to recess the inlay. I used a dremel tool with a 5/64" high speed cutter to do the detail carving on the leaves.
    Intarsia consists of 41 pieces.
