  • New to Intarsia

    I am looking for a nice starter Intarsia project and looking at different patterns I notice that there are two types available. Some plans includes versions for the "cut and paste method" and the "trace" method. And some you can order one or the other.

    What is the difference and which would I be better off ordering?

    Remember you only really need 2 tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the Duct Tape

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

      Might as well start big...go with tracing. cut and paste means your pieces never fit well because you never know what side of the line to be on. Use carbon paper to trace each piece on to your wood. every time you cut a piece, masking tape it to the last piece. use a combination of already cut pieces and the pattern to trace the next piece...this method allows a good fitting technique, and keeps you more on track with the pattern. good luck..hope you follow what I'm saying, and have fun doing it.

        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
        That is...

        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

        Now,...
