    There's lots of threads on here you can search for on intarsia's. Other than that, just ask what you want to know and someone will have an answer.

          Wildwood designs and cherry tree have alot of intarsia patterns. I'd suggest buying a book such as one of Judy Gale Roberts' books on beginner intarsia...which also comes with some patterns.

            A lot of people have started intarsia with the Teddy Bear. WARNING, IT WILL GET YOU HOOKED.

              Saw man,

              Kathy Wise had some very nice kits at the open house.
              I think they are a great introduction to Intarsia. She provides every thing you need wood, patterns etc. The instructions are step by step with great pictures. I will do the kit I bought after I finish my holiday stuff.

              Our club just did an introductory couple of sessions on the intarsia a very simple 10 piece flower. I just finished mine and will post a picture as soon as i take it.
              Take Chuck D's WARNING very seriously.

                  Yes, I met Kathy Wise at a picnic in wisconsin. She has hundreds of excellent patterns. I know she does instructional intarsia teaching as well. That's a great place to start. And I'm not just saying that because she's here in Michigan too.

                    Off topic, sort of.

                    Jeff,

                    I was curious what do you do with all of the magnificent Intarsia work that you do.?

                    Your house must be a huge gallery if you keep it all.

                      You got that right rolf. Most of it I keep, once in awhile I give them away as gifts or to the odd charity. My daughters room is two walls of intarsias...my living room is all intarsias...down the stairs, a 40 foot wall in the basement full of intarsia's. I love to make them and I don't like to see them go. When I'm really board of one, I'll donate it, but that's not too often. What I'm trying to do is build them more and more complicated so that they take a lot longer to do. This slow's down the need for wall space. Most of them I'm willing to sell, but only if the price is right, which it almost never is. I've maybe sold 3 intarsia's over the 5 years I've been making them...one of those being the mentora dragon that I showed someone and they wanted it bad. This is an expensive hobby for me, I have about $40,000 invested including the outbuilding, tools, and lumber, and my return has been under $1000. But that's all monitary...the real return is in my happiness and health which can't be measured by dollars.

                            Jim - I would suggest going to the intarsia section of the forum and checking out the challenge posts. And feel free to ask questions - lots of helpful people there.
                            Mick - yes, it is bringing up an old post, but I'm sure there are many people who want to know the answer still!

                              I didn't mean to sound sarcastic. I just happened to notice the date on the original post.

                                Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

                                I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

                                I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                                Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.
