Intarsia?? Marquetry?? Church

Editor's Choice - Aug 11, 2015

A year ago I made this church, but never posted it here. After posting a link here to a woodworkers toolshop gallery I got questions how I made the bricks. Therefore I made a blog entry from how it was done.

That,s also the reason to post this piece here on WWW. My question to you is can I call it intarsia?

I thought it would be fun to make a intarsia piece of the church where I on every Friday evening practice on my euphonium with the local wind band. There was a renovation and I could get the Wenge and Parana Pine (old pew) that was left for free. Well for free? As reward I made this piece. The scale is 1:10, and that means a piece of about 1×1mtr. (40×40”) The types of wood I used are: Parana pine, Wenge, Ash, Oak, Auwora and Mahogany.

Woods: parana pine wenge ash oak mahogany auwora

Tools: drum sander bandsaw

Among others Jeff Vandenberg after he had seen my church in the Baptist gallery asked how I made the bricks and that is the reason I posted this piece here last week. And now it is an editor’s choice. Thanks Jeff!
