Double Sided Intarsia Projects

One of our customers, Ian Christie, has been experimenting with finishing off both sides of his intarsia.

He doesn't use a backing to glue the individual pieces on to. Because he cuts them out so accurately he is able to do without a plywood backing and just glue all the individual pieces together.

The front of the intarsia is contoured as normal, while the back is sanded flat. The images below, from Ian, will show you what he's been up to.

If you've enjoyed these photos but think your own work is better, why not send me your images and I'll add them to a gallery.

Most of these photos were taken by woodworkers. The quality, as you will see, varies from "not too bad" to "not very good".

Taking good photos of your work is not rocket science and well worth the small amount of effort required. Your basic digital camera is fine if you get the lighting correct. Learn how with this "Taking Good Product Shots" article.
