Richie Ashburn marquetry

For the longest time, I've wanted to try marquetry.  Marquetry is the art and craft of applying pieces of wood veneer to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures.  I must confess, this one of former Phillies great, Richie Ashburn, was accomplished on the computer.  Exotic wood were scanned and positioned to form the Hall of Famer rounding third base.  In short, no sawdust was inhaled in execution of this piece.
