This is a tribute to Kevin, who was raised by by sister and her now husband.

I made this as a wedding gift for them. It is my third intarsia.

Its soft maple, walnut, and a bit of white oak.
Finished with 3 coats of tru-oil.
Tools: Ryobi scroll saw, dremel tool, kutzall fat flame (1/8”), and a belt/disk sander.

I included the picture I worked off of, and a picture of the happy couple!

Yes, Kevin was made into delicious pork products. They are presently raising two pigs this year.

Great job, especially for your third intarsia project. I always find it rewarding to create my own patterns, not that I don’t mind buying stock patterns which I have done and still will do, but I like the uniqueness of a one of a kind piece like you did.
