This dramatic design is a lot easier than it may look at first glance.
It is made up of 4 separate layers each of which is easy to make but combine to make a stunning intarsia.
- The man himself. Those sunnies avoid any intricate detail around the eyes as well as making him look "real cool"
- Handlebars, fuel tank and engine block
- Frame and front forks
- Front wheel
You just glue the layers on top of each other and Roberts your Aunty.
The book Intarsia down Under includes separate patterns for each of the 4 levels.
You also get step by step instructions that are illustrated with over 20 close up colour photos of each stage of the construction process.
