This is emblem of my city made in veneer intarsia.
The gray veneer is regular oak soaked in water with iron nails for a few weeks .

Beautiful! You must have an infinite amount of patience!

I like the surrounding medallions, too.

Wow, This is stunning! I so wish I could get the brown boxes to get bigger like they are suppose to. Bitch, Bitch I can not help myself. I would love to see this closer up. What a neat idea. I often look at different items in daily life and wonder how awesome they would be made out of Intarsia, So for me it’s wonderful to see someone take that thought and go all the way!
Thanks for sharing!!!

I have done some intarsia myself and can appreciate the Artistry, patience and skill. Great Job.

Is Haapsalu Finnish? or Swedish by chance?
