Paul has enjoyed doing carpentry and woodworking his whole life but he now focuses exclusively on his "Intarsia" work.
Intarsia is a special form of wood inlay developed in Early Italy. Paul explains that Intarsia is to wood what mosaics are to ceramics.
Intarsia can be approached in many ways but Paul says he believes the most satisfying is when a project can be made using nothing but the wood specie's natural colors and grain patterns.
