Ron has always had an interest in woodworking, especially intarsia woodworking. This is the art of creating a mosaic-like picture from pieces of wood. Different species of wood are selected for their color and cut to size using a scroll saw. Ron would create an illusion of depth by carefully selecting the grain pattern and direction of each individual piece.

His most challenging and creative work is the Easter Cross pictured here, consisting of over 150 pieces. Be sure to view Ron’s artwork in the showcase on the Ventura Townehouse lower level.
