This hand crafted intarsia inlay is a study of the edge between pattern and randomness. Traditional joinery techniques using butternut, oak, walnut, ash and cherry was employed in constructing this piece. Walnut sticks were first cut diagonally, then wood veneer was inserted and the sticks re-glued. These sticks were then cross cut to make the repeating unit of the inlaid pattern. Units were rotated and flipped before fixing into the field.
