Having done intarsia myself, I can readily appreciate the massive talent and artistry of Kathy Wise. Her current book Entitled Intarsia Woodworking Projects in my estimation is great. It is very thorough, easy to understand, and full of helpful tips to make your intarsia experience a pleasant and informative one. I stand in awe of such artistic talent and the patterns in this book go from relatively easy to very challenging. If you enjoy intarsia, this is the book for you. Visit her website at [...] to see many more great patterns. This is a great new talent that will be around a long, long time.

This wonderful Book has really great patterns and the basic information in the front is very complete. I would and will recommend it to any beginners or woodworkers that want to improve their skill at Intarsia. The 21 patterns are well worth the price of the book. Kathy's designs are bringing intarsia to a new level of art, way beyond the craft stage. It is absolutely the BEST book on Intarsia available in the marketplace today, can't wait for her next book!

Refreshing! A friendly guide into the world of intarsia... not at all intimadating or patronizing. Kathy's book gives me confidence to try projects that I otherwise may have thought too advanced for my skill level and as a result of this... My skill level is advancing too!!! Thank you Kathy! Please write more books!!!

I have been doing Intarsia for nearly 10 yrs now. I had ordered a couple of patterns from Kathy in the past. It had been awhile since I had been on Kathy's website and then one day I was looking for new patterns. Wow did her work ever take off to another level. She had just been featured with her animal jungle scene in a wood magazine. I was blown away by that work of art. Well her book had just been published as well, so I had to purchase this book. Whatever tips I could get from this book I knew I needed. I only hope that someday my work can be as good as Kathy's is. Great deal on this book, you get a lot of very cool patterns. Plus all of the tips to go along with it.

I am an experienced woodworker, but new to intarsia. This book contains excellent instructions from beginner to advanced projects. The projects themselves are typical of Kathy Wise's artistic and wonderful renditions of animals and people. The book comes with a packet of full-size plans. I recommend it to beginners and more experienced persons wanting to advance their skill level. All of the projects contained in the book are good enough to find a place on the wall in most homes.

I have purchased more than one intarsia book and this is by far my favorite. Kathy has broken down a seemingly difficult process into simple steps that are easy to follow. Great step by step photos show the entire process. Also ingenious tips are added throughout the book. Very well written with a great pattern selection which includes a pouch in the back with oversize patterns ready to copy and cut. I highly recommend this book.

We recently purchased your latest book, "Intarsia Woodworking Projects" published 2007 and are enjoying it and your patterns. We find them adaptable for beginners, immediate and advanced. We have not yet worked any patterns in this new book but are looking forward to doing so. We especially like the clydesdale and colt, the eagle, and the calf roper. This really is your best book yet. There are many good tips in the "Do's and Don'ts" section. Enjoyed the item on Mop Sanding and plan to purchase one in the near future. We have been Intarsia woodworkers for the past five years and have completed well over 300 projects. We have two "biggest" projects. One has over 300 pieces, it is our most complex. The other was six foot tall and 49" wide - a life size of Christ - and hangs in a church in Spokane, WA. Looking forward to you new patterns as they come out, and your next book.
