  • New scroller from NYC

    Hello!

    I am relatively new to scrolling although I've done many larger woodworking projects in the past (bookshelves, cabinets, and bed frame). Last year, I took my first stab at intarsia using a palette of exotic woods, a borrowed Delta SS350LS, and a pattern of my own design.

    Just before Christmas, I bought myself a DeWalt DW788 and set it up in my father's shop. It's kind of difficult to house a scrollsaw in an 1BR apartment, so I go to my parents' house on weekends to do most of my work. My dad has been scrolling for about 20 years, and I'm sure that he will appreciate the difference between the 20 inch DeWalt and his 15 year old 16 inch Craftsman!

    I'm interested in intarsia and would like to try fretwork. I'm looking forward to picking up tips and ideas here!

    I've attached pics of my very first intarsia project - a fish, snail, and plant that I made for my custom-built 15 gallon aquarium stand.

        Thanks!
        I was happy with how the fish came out - especially considering it was my first attempt at intarsia. There are a few pieces that just didn't want to fit together despite two recuts and lots of careful sanding. I learned alot making that fish!

        Rolf, my parents are in Levittown (just south of Hicksville) and I am in Kew Gardens, Queens. My buddy from whom I borrowed the Delta saw is a woodturning member of the LIWC. I'll try to get out of work early to make one of the meetings.

                      Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                      It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.

                      Hi Jo - that is an absolutely stunning piece of work and a labor of love to draw the pattern and then transform it into a dimensional wood project and give so much life to the character. Your choice of wood color and grain combination is also spot on. Wow!

                      I'm going to share this image...
