Fairy Cabinet by seeartnow Fairy Cabinet by seeartnow
Old found cabinet given new life with intarsia doors.
This is my style of intarsia, it's called "flat panel" intarsia. I inlay the background with panels then overlay with another wood panel to create the depth needed. I try to use the grain of the wood as a brush stroke to create direction then stain it to my satisfaction.

Thank you so much for the " DD." Thanks to ^FrockTarts and for all the wonderful comments I've received from the many fantastic artists out there.

Beautiful. I love the gradient at the top, and using the natural grain for the tree trunk.

What an amazing idea. You certainly do seem to use grain as a brush.

(I didn't see the fairy in the thumbnail and found myself worrying that it was a cabinet for filing a pressed fairy collection...

So wonderful!! It seems it's real, I mean, I know it is a drawing, although, maybe because of the perspective, my senses stil want to convince my brain we can touch it or even climb it :heart:
