Handmade Intarsia

What is Intarsia?

Intarsia is the craft of using various shapes, sizes and types of wood to create 3-D artwork.  Intarsia uses the natural grain pattern and color of each wood to create the different colors in each completed piece (no colored stains are used to create the differing colors).  Cutting, shaping and sanding each section of wood separately and then fitting them together makes the final Intarsia piece.
