  • 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.

        When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

        Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

        Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

        Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
