  • My first 3 intarsia projects

    The attached are the results of my winter with a scroll saw. These are my first scrolling efforts. This is also my first effort at adding attachments to a post. Hope it works.

    Many of you may recognize the patterns. The Prarie and Calla Lillies hang from a backer while the Chipmunks were mounted in a background and mounted in a home made frame. All 3 hang predominately in my home. Now on to more scrolling.........

          Absolutely amazingly impressive!!! These are great for your 101, 102, and 103 pieces, let alone your first 3! WOW.

              Really nicely done, Bob - no one would even guess those to be beginner efforts.
              How large are they? I keep wanting to try intarsia, but the projects seem so large I'd have nowhere to display them. You've whetted my appetite again.

                  Great work. Where did you get the Lilly pattern? That just might work for a room in our house.

                      Sandy:
                      The finished size of the Prarie Lily is 12"x8" , the Calla Lily is 11"x6", the Chipmunks are 22"x13" (framed is 29"x19"). I did the Prarie Lily first. This required scrolling, wood burning and carving (with a dremel). These were very manageable and fun to do. Trusting this info helps.

                          Those look great! I haven't tried intarsia yet (I like fretwork), but I will try it at some point.

                              Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                              How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                              The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                              I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                              Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                              If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                              Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.

                              Thank you all for the info. Sounds like itโ€™s talent or practice issue not my saws. Wife already gave permission to buy a new one. I will wait tho
