The woodworking is coming out of the woodwork at a local coffee shop.
Charles “Scotty” Scott’s intarsia art is being showcased at the Coffee Peddlar, 112 Harrison Ave., through the end of the year.
Scotty, Colerain Township, began experimenting with intarsia in 2002 after his son and daughter-in-law, Harrison, gave him an intarsia eagle. His formal training consisted of a six-hour course, reading a book and attending the Judy Gale Roberts Studio in Gatlinburg.
Intarsia is a woodworking technique creating a mosaic-like picture with the illusion of depth. Different woods are selected, cut, shaped and finished, and then applied to the piece like a puzzle which is fitted onto a separate wood-backing.
