  • 1940 Ford Pickup Intarsia

    I designed this intarsia from several pictures of 1940 Ford trucks finding their lines intriguing. I chose the woods to use based on actual 1940 Ford color charts which state "Sahara Tan" was a standard choice....which worked out well for the lighter woods needed like maple, ash, aspen, and birch. Darker woods are walnut which has been ebonized with a vinegar solution to varying degrees of shade. For the window glass, I applied a 2 part acrylic on top of the wood....just to spiff it up a notch. I'm not a vehicle buff, but this truck has a lot of character.

        Great job Linda. Wish I could find more time to focus on my intarsia. Some day.

                  I love that! I think pre-WWII trucks are some of the coolest looking vehicles ever produced. Your intarsia interpretation captures that look very well.

                  Nice work!

                    You did a really great job on that. Looks like it is ready to "gas-n-go".
