Up North Intarsia Pattern
Up North to us antipodeans but South Pacific to the rest of the world.
Intarsia is much easier and more effective if it is built in layers rather than in-laying the foreground bits into the background bits. Easy is good.
So following this principle the palm trees are stuck on top of the sky.
This design will give you the opportunity to use up lots of scrap timber. You know, those bits that are too good to throw away but too small for most woodworking projects.
But don't take our word, check out some of our Customer's Finished South Pacific Projects.
This design really does capture the essence of the tropics. And you can too by following the detailed plan.
