Hello everyone, I’m Ivan from Serbia, dealing with intarsia about two years ago as a hobby after a regular job. This is my last work completed yesterday. There are about 280 pieces.

That is some awful nice intarsia! Something I plan on trying soon.

I love the quatrefoils and the arches. They make up my favorite architecture. I want such details on some furniture in the future. Would you be able to show us how you did it?

Thanks to all. I love gothic architecture. I did not photographed procedures for preparing, but it may help you the image of tools that I used. Basically it is a homemade tool. First I cut a curve on bandsaw, quatrefoils I cut with scrolsaw because they are small in size.
Then sanding with oscilating drum sander. Then the router that I was attached to a table of bandsaw. for arch I used several standard router bit to get the desired profile and a wooden limiter that you see in the picture.
Quatrefoils are made of two parts, and because the small size should be careful when working with router.
