  • 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!!

                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
