Stunning intricacies of intarsia
Piece by piece, Don Watschke of Osakis is mastering a uniquely intricate hobby. "To me, it's like a big puzzle," he said.
Intarsia is a woodworking technique that uses small, individually cut pieces of wood assembled to create an image - much like a wooden mosaic. A variety of woods is used to create color, depth and texture.
What's particularly unique about Watschke's hobby is his latest project - an intarsia depiction of Leonardo da Vinci's painting, The Last Supper.
