Lyle Sanstead of Evansville has never been much of a carpenter and he has no art background. Nonetheless, 13 years ago he became something he never thought he would - an intarsia artist.


"I had no inkling at all that I would ever do anything like this, but I love it," Lyle said.

He was first introduced to intarsia by his brothers-in-law who are avid intarsia artists.
