Selecting wood for your intarsia project could be a tricky deal. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a chart you can look at to help you choose? Well, Mike Mathiew from Midlotian Woodworks has a great article and reference chart he wrote for Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts (Spring, 2009). He includes a picture of each wood, a color description, intarsia uses, and effects over time. The article and chart is free to download and print from SSW&C website and made available in PDF format. I’d suggest printing out the chart on photo paper to ensure color accuracy. Check it out!
