For those folks who have been collecting the Gold Presidtial Dollas, I offer the USA Great Seal and Collector boards.
The Great Seal is approximately 17" square. The colors in this project are natural wood colors (except the blue in the shield). The technique used is called Intarsia. Very technical and time consuming. Each piece is cut separately with the grain lined up and the proper species of wood to enhance the picture. Once all the pieces are cut, it is time to shape the pieces for proper fit and contour. When all the pieces "dry fit" to my satisfaction, then and only then are the pieces glued to the backboard. Using oil based lacquer ensures that the natural colors of the wood are really brought to the surface.
The coin boards hold 10 Gold Dollars and are chain linked below the Great Seal board.
