  • One Subject, various patterns

    I have been playing around alot this past year with using one subject and designing multiple patterns for fretwork, intarsia/segmentation.

    "Mooshoo Dragon" is one of the projects we have worked on this past year. I am curious to know how many have ever taken their favorite scrolled pattern and tried to convert it to another style, i.e., fretwork, segementation and what the results were.

    I love your work Toni and Sue!

    I have done some experimenting with the pattern designs but haven't cut anything yet. I was working on the heads of Easter Island.
    I did designs for fretwork, segmentation, and puzzles. I didn't get a chance to do any intarsia designs for it yet.

      I'm sure I'd love those projects (all your stuff is good ) but I'm finding the photos a little small to see any detail. Any chance of enlarging them?

        I want it !!!

        Hi Toni,

        I agree with GILL that your images are small. my screen resolution is set to 1280x1024 and it makes for a very small, itsy bity image.

        This being said, it looks like an awesome dragon.

        Liking dragons myself, I went to your website and did not see the pattern as available.

        Are you going to make it available in a pattern for fretwork?

        Awesome work, as usual.

          Thanks for the kind words Carl, Gill, and Marcel.

          As for the size of the pictures, ah well, I no longer determine the format of the pictures we publish (on forums and on the website) since I turned over the whole job to my daughter. I was quick to pick some off her machine this morning, .... sorry, i'll see what I can come up with for larger.

          Marcel, as for the pattern - yes "Mooshoo" is available in both fretwork and intarsia/segmentation, but Ricki hasn't had time to put it on the site yet. I will send you an email when it is. If you want to arrange purchasing this pattern, PM me and I will get it off to you.

          Thanks again for the replies. Much appreciated.

          Take care

            I've only done a couple of patterns in more than one style, these are from my drawings. As I don't cut a lot of segmentation or intarsia, I still don't have a good feel for what makes a decent pattern in those styles.

              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
