            Melvo....I would love to see some of your work. Can you post some pictures?
            I dont have a saw yet, but I am interested in trying out intarsia, soon as I get my saw.

              Welcome Melvo. You picked one of the hard ones, with Intarsia. Well, maybe not the hardest. I just don't do it because of all the sanding. Don't have patience. Hope you like it here & join in with your projects, & let us see how you are doing. Good Luck

                A modified Sue Mey pattern to fit 1" x 4" x 10" Hard Maple. Cut on the Pegas scroll saw using a Pegas #5 MGT blade. One side says "TEACH". Flip it over and the other side says "LEARN". After sanding, dipped in diluted Shellac, sanded again and another dipping. Comments...

                I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...
