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.
