      Google "intarsia pronunciation" and you will find a link where you can hear the correct way of saying it.

      I think it is latin as I never wondered about the pronunciation, but had it rather correct. Do not think I know latin, but I have a rather good understanding of how to say words in that language.

                    I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                    If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                    The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                    I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
