Where the wild things are....

My hubby has a wall in the den with just things he has made from wood that he treasures.  All but the fans are Intarsia figures.  They are cut into small pieces and put back together like mosaic.  In fact that is where the Italian word Intarsia came from.  It means mosaic and the technique is a mosaic in wood.  It takes many hours to create these pieces but he loves making them.  We have a special order for the Buck Deer and he is making another right now.  We always keep the first one made.  Thanks for looking and come back soon!

  1. That is so interesting. I learned something new today. Thank you! What wonderful work your husband does. Did you know there is a method called Intarsia crochet? I've yet to try it. It looks like fun.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and hubby :-)
