Magnets-Intarsia

The ancient art of intarsia is a woodworking technique that uses wood fitted together to create a mosaic-like image which projects an illusion of depth. Variations in the design are created through use of different types of wood, grain and color, to create variations in the pattern. The most elaborate examples of intarsia are found in the solid wood matrix of floors, walls, tabletops and other furniture which have been held as items of great luxury and prestige since the 15th and 16th centuries.

Over time, Alan and Matthew have acquired more than 100 different types of wood, each with its own distinctive color, grain and density. Alan and Matthew create meticulously detailed intarsia magnets using a variety of the woods and finishes, no detail is too small or inconsequential in the creative process. With such a broad selection, they never employ stain or die for contrast, and use only a clear finish for protection.
