  • intarsia by nick

    This is my newest piece. Does anyone go to craftshows? And could you tell me what any intarsia goes for in them, so i can have a stronger idea on what they are worth. Thanks, Nick

    Beautiful work Nick.
    I have no idea what the finished pieces would be worth, but don't forget that the patterns you are making are worth lots too

      The last craft show I was at about 2 years ago had a vendor there selling his intarsia for anywhere from $350 to over $1600, depending on the complexity of the piece. I thought he wouldn't generate many sales, but he was taking orders for delivery 9 months from the sale date.

      He told me that he only goes into 2 shows per year, takes orders and spends the rest of the time sawing and filling those orders. He didn't get into how he prices items, as he was starting to get busy then and I certainly did not want to interfere. He had some beautiful pieces on display.

        I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...

        Skimming through this post, I came across 1 response to Quartz and one to Bill Wilson as PMs from Kelly, a new editorial assistant, regarding our comments. Here is my 2 cents regarding the copying. To understand what we mean, please take the issue with the sword fish on the front and copy that on a...

        I want to say I’ve seen the pattern before but can’t remember where. I’ll have to try searching the SSWC article index to see if it was in the magazine (although previous searches haven’t been too successful for me in the index)....

        It really isn’t that bright when you see them. I want to paint the rose and vine and leaves but he’s skeptical since I always say I hate to paint. I can actually paint just don’t like to that much. I think a dark red at the center of the rose graduating to a lighter shade on the outer edges and...
