  • Intarsia on the road

    I am just getting started and I have a problem. We are going to be living and travelling in an RV in the near future and would like to do Intarsia while travelling. Weight and size is a factor for any equipment I will take. Other than a scroll saw, if you were travelling, what other portable equipment would you take? Are there multipurpose tools that can be made or purchased?

    I made a sander with a flexdrum on it to sand walking sticks...would think it would be nice to have to sand the edges of your intarsia....used a evap. cooler motor, used the two speed (slow speed is best most times) and bought the flexdrum set for 35.00. I believe there is a picture of it on my picturetrail site.

      Dave,

      Going to be heading out your direction about Jan 3rd or so, depending on snowstorms. Show me your sander when I get there.

          One of the most versitile tools around is the rotary tool. It is light, easy to store and can be used for a multiple of purposes. With the proper attachements, you have a sander,router,drill press, carving tool .... and probably some I forgot.

          In your case RVGeorge, I would think investing in a Dremel rotary tool would be a good choice of portable equipment.
