Several years ago, I saw two
beautiful pieces of wooden art
hanging on the wall in the home of a good friend in
Langly B.C. ( Ken Simpson ) As
I looked at them, I thought
that this art form was something that I would like to
I arrived home to Omemee
Ontario I did some
research and found that this art form is called Intarsia.
I found some sorces for patterns, ordered a few simple
purchased some tools and lumber,
and I was
hooked on Intarsia. I retired from
my full time job in
April of 2004, and
I found that in a year or so I had the
of Intarsia pieces. The full house is the reason
that I now offer my pieces for sale. I make my patterns
out of 1/8" Baltic Birch Plywood,
and therefore can use
them again and again. Compared to most of the Intarsia
that I have seen, I do a lot more raising, lowering and
of the individual pieces than most people do.
gives my pieces a much greater three dimensional
than most that I have seen. If you have enjoyed
looking at my work, please pass it on to your friends.
In July of 2009 we moved to Lindsay Ontario,This is only
a move of about 15 miles. The reason? Smaller
lot, and less upkeep to be done.
