Easter Bunny Intarsia

Egg Rabbit-Lead

By Kathy Wise

This versatile design can be made a number of different ways. First choose whether your bunny will be a solid color or have spots. Then decide if you will display the bunny on its own, add the simple base or include the Easter egg design.

The project is actually very easy to cut and assemble. In fact, the solid color bunny only has 23 pieces. Try experimenting with different woods or stains to create your very own design.
