Since then, I have been doing what I call 3D intarsia - without a backing - so it can be viewed and enjoyed from all sides.A great advantage of 3D intarsia is that your piece isn't limited to a wall mounting.
It can be displayed on an easel, in its own stand or even hung in a window.IntroductionAll the woods indicated here are suggestions only.You can use whatever is available to you.I chose bird's eye maple for the throat of the *d*lt to give it a textured look, then each segment was sawed, shaped, and glued back together to mimic the 'throat grooves.
