    Can anyone help me out with this problem, after making my mum's mothers day present my wife said she would like something similar but instead of a flower in the middle of a plate she wants something Oriental. I remember seeing somewhere an intarsia oriental boy kneeling with a bowl of rice in his hands but for the life of me i can't remember where, i have searched but up until now without success, so does anyone remember seeing this and where can i get the pattern.

    I never saw anything like that before, but what first came to mind for me was a yin-yang symbol. They are so easy to customize with other symbols also.

      I've never seen that one before. It wouldn't be hard to find some chinese characters or symbols and do one with that- if she likes that idea.

        What about cherry blossoms, or Coi fish accompanied by characters for mother?

          Thanks for the replies folk, i know my wife would be happy with any kind of oriental work but i know that the piece i saw would be the best to do for her. Ah well, i'll just have to keep searching through the internet, i have got till june to do it for her birthday, so the search continues.

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

            I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
