A year and a half ago, we took a trip up the Oregon coast to visit the lighthouses. I had this idea of making an intarsia project of each lighthouse. So far, I've only gotten 1 done. I have new respect for those who make intarsia patterns. I discovered it's not as easy as one might think. The wood used is pine, purple heart, bloodwood, lig. vitae, walnut and popular. I did learn a lot so I'm hoping the next one will be both easier and better.
