  • A couple of quickies

    From Kathy Wise in the holiday issue of SWWC. The snowman is redheart and aspen and the reindeer is lyptus, redheart, aspen and Brazilian cherry. These were a treat to cut and a nice little change of pace for me.

      You did these Kevin? Wow. I'm impressed. They are very nice. It just doesn't look like your work. You are really getting versatile.

        Kevin, I love them!! They are so cute!! I have not attempted intarsia. I always thought it looked too hard, but you have really got me interested in trying it!! Were they difficult to do?? Now where did I put my new SSW&C magazine!?!?! I'm off to find it to check these out! Thanks for posting these!!

          Those are so cute (and nicely made). Kevin, you're a source of continual surprises.

            Thanks all!
            Cathy, these were quite easy to do. If you like intarsia, my suggestion is to just pick something you like and go for it! Actually, that's pretty much my suggestion for any type of scrolling. I figure the worst that can happen is that you goof and create some nice firewood but the lessons learned along the way are invaluable.

              Kevin's right Cathy...The little Teddy Bear I posted in another thread was my first attempt at intarsia and even though I had to hand sand it all it was a fun little project!!! So much so that I bought a dual shaft flex sander so I can do more (it arrived yesterday). As Kevin said, jump right in and do it!! Don't be afraid to do something new and different with the saw. Now that my book is behind me I've been trying a lot of new stuff and having fun in the shop. (The book started to be a job rather than a hobby there near the end and a lot of the fun and relaxation of scrolling was lost to "gotta get it done")!! Intarsia isn't a difficult process, it just looks that way before you get started. Once you get rolling on an intarsia project it's hard to leave the shop even for a cup of coffee!!! Try it....you'll like it.
              If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
