I've never been a fan of mixing natural timber intarsia and paint. I always though the paint distracted from the natural timber colours. Best avoided.
Until now. Pat recently sent me his version of my Backyard Contemplation project.

Danny from Ohio has just sent me some photos of his work including his version of Elvis.
Having done my own Elvis intarsia pattern it was a delight to see his take on this rock-n-roll icon.
Just look at those side burns!
Marc sent me this photo of his work last year.
I've lost Marc's email, sorry mate, but saved the images because they look so good. Click here to see both the photos Marc sent.
He has taken one of the dolphins from the Dolphin Sculpture Plan and mounted it on its own base using a perspex rod. Too easy and looks wonderful. Read More......
It's not often I get emails from what used to be Persia and is now Iran. Five years I got one from Mastanah Shakibi who was enthusiastic about intarsia and asked me some woodwork questions. Emails have been flowing between Australia and Iran ever since.
Terry recently sent me a few photos of his work. Well, more than a few really, 60 photos. That's right, sixty.
The quality of some of the photos is not the best (sorry Terry, I've tried to improve them as much as I could) but they will give you a good idea of the range of subjects available for intarsia.
