        Although it's very whimsical, it's still cool. Yet the skill that went into its production... wow!

        It's got to be one of the nicest projects I've ever seen on this forum.

          Well done, that is just brilliant. I really like it and I will NOT show it to my wife....she'll want me to do one . I don't do Intarsa just fretwork and such.

              the amish kids are about 30" tall. i reduce my picture 25% just to send it on the message board. the pattern came from judy gale roberts studio.

                    That's an excellent piece of work, Your mom must be very proud of it. I really admire intarsia artists, the amount of work that goes into a project like that must be daunting.
                    Thanks for posting

                      That is paying hommage to your mom in the nicest fashion: What a nice piece of artwork to give her, and I really mean a beautifull one.

                      This piece is demonstrating a lot of talent (and TLC).

                      I'm sure your mom will proudly display it, and it will make a nice artwork heirloom.

                        That is some fine work. This is one of the things I love about this site and the hobby. You get to see the beautiful work of others and take it as an inspiration to improve my own skills.
                        Thanks Brent

                          I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                          I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

                          The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
