  • First three projects

    I made these for Christmas gifts this year.

    First Fret work. I made six of these...

    First attempt at intarsia. I made nine of these...

    First portrait and first pattern attempt. This is a picture of my mother that I never saw until after her death. I gave it to my dad yesterday and I could tell he really liked it, although he never shows emotion at all. This is the project I am most proud of.

          Great first pieces. Love the intarsia. Looks very hard to do.

              Thanks for your nice comments. You all helped a lot. I almost felt like I knew what I was doing before I started.

                You should be proud of that portrait and I know your father would like it. It is very well done.

                    That is a fantastic portrait, Dan - both the pattern and the cutting. Hard to believe it's your first!

                      Dan, that is great work! Just comparing the actual picture with the pattern you created helped me better understand how to adjust my own technique in pattern making, thanks for sharing.

                          Dan! I fell in love with the intarsa but then I saw the pic of your mother. WoW!!! First, she was a beautiful woman. Second, That is a superb wooden cut. You did a first class job on that cut and the frame. Your mom is definitely smiling upon you this Christmas!!!

                            Hi, Dan,
                            I agree with all the other comments that you did extremely well if those are firsts!
                            You certainly didn't shy away from delicate cuts with that portrait and you really did an excellent job.
                            I really don't understand why all the fretwork on the part of a frame that won't show
                            when a photo is inserted but, you did an excellent job on that project as well.
                            Thank you for sharing and God Bless! Spirithorse

                              I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                              Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                              We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
