    My mom loves to make things out of wood and asked what I'd like to have. I told her a cabinet to hold my fat quarters. Well, here is what she made me!!! It is SO BEAUTIFUL!! She hand carves the pieces individually. I think it is called Intarsia. (Probably spelling that wrong!)

    I need to spend more time arranging the fat quarters but for now they are just in there.

    enjoy!

    It's beautiful! My hubby is a wood carver too. So I can really appreciate how much work your mom did to make you such a beautiful cabinet.
