Hi Everyone
Here is a sneak peak of my newest Intarsia project.This is the top section of a fairly large frame (24" x 30") made from cherry with Custom 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. Gluing up the frame is the next step.

looks really good, I like the contrast between the green and the purple against the maple

Very nice Mike! I really like the extra detail of the carving in the leaves. I think it really adds to the piece.

Thanks Guys
To Dirk-Last year I did the restoration of an 1860's love seat for a client which had the Grape Motif along the top. The same client wanted to incorporate the Motif into the frame.
