Intarsia is a woodworking technique that uses varied shapes, sizes, and species of wood fitted together to create a mosaic-like picture with an illusion of depth. Duane uses thick hard and soft woods of many species to get the color and grain pattern that enhances his art.
Since working with wood was one of his hobbies, Duane built a shop in his basement and proceeded to build cabinets for his home and church. After reading an article in Wood Magazine by Judy Gale Roberts in 2006, and made an eagle from the pattern provided in the magazine, that launched his intarsia journey.
If you are curious about this technique and how it is used to make beautiful, functional art pieces from wood, then don’t miss this lecture.
