  • 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.

            by Ennobee
            While still trying to summon the courage to finish the final version of my Gotha bomber, I got sidetracked and stumbled upon some plans from two years ago: a giant four-engined brother to my earlier Fokker Trimotor... The ultimate 1930's dieselpunk engine.

            THe plans were designed for 1/2...

            He went to his meeting last night and it was a tool swap. He came home with - Jet slow water grinder (?), new never used air brush, and a never used spray tent that exhausts to the outside and an extra tent. All for the grand total of $35....

            Very nice. I thought it was carved.

            For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

            I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

            Celtic knot-shamrock cross
            by Ennobee
            My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....
