  • Nativity Intarsia

    I made this back in early December, and used the patterns from Issue 29, Holiday 2007. I drew up the sitting sheep and standing camels to add some variation. I also designed my own stable and put a light inside. I was going to make a fancy 3D intarsia stable but my mom insisted on a rustic-looking stable, so I went with that. Overall, I loved the way it turned out!

    You did a nice job and I like the rustic (appropriate) look of the stable. I make one similar to that but I add some moss on the roof and around the base.

      Walls,
      That really came out great. The stable was the right choice. I would love to see the detail on one of the camels, they look like a really nice design.

        Fantastic job on that project Walls, it should make the rounds as a family heirloom quiet nicely.

              The stable sets off the beautiful shaping & colors of the finished pieces.

              Great layout & wonderful job!

                I'm with Rolf, can we get some more info on the camels. The wood used with them is perfect but hard to tell what wood it is. You have a family heirloom there as it turned out awesome.
                Did you do backers for the pieces? Just curious because I have been wanting to do this set and thought I would just CA glue them up and sand the backs nice and then put a finish on both sides.

                    Hi Walls - that's a lovely work which is sure to be treasured for many Christmas's to come. Thumbs up to your mum for her choice of stable too.
                    You both done good!

                      I've gotta find that issue. Have yet to build first intarsia project yet, but would love to do that by next Christmas.

                          Thanks everyone for the feedback! My mom is definitely my biggest fan! As for the camels, I used sycamore wood. Being at school, I can't get close-ups of them right now. I used my pyrography pen to detail the hair on the camel hump as well as the eyes/other details on the pieces. Also, I didn't use backer pieces. I just glued the pieces together using regular wood glue and sanded the backs, finishing both sides. They are really sturdy too!

                            Walls, I checked out your blog but the dark brown back drop makes it difficult to read your messages. Overall I like it but I want to make a suggestion (could you change the brown to a lighter shade)
