  • Latest intarsia- Bear Cub

    It has been a while since I posted a picture... not that I didn't want to share but I have been taking it very slowly since January on intarsia. I needed a break after being in a hurry for all the Christmas gifts! Only did 3 projects in the first 3 months!

    This little bear is for a friend. She has a "bear" theme in her bathroom. Previously, I made her the polar bear mom and baby on a piece of ice. This time, she picked this JGR pattern (22 x 12", 39 pcs).

    Wood used: Cedar and Blue pine for the tree. Peruvian Walnut, Butternut, Beech and Santos rosewood (nose). I used a thick wire brush wheel to do his fur since I don't have a wonder wheel. You can see it better on the close-up picture. I kind of happy with the end result.

        That's a lovely piece, Henriette. You and the wire brush did a great job with the texturing. He really looks furry.

        Nice to see something from you, although I can well understand the need for a vacation!

          Another very nice piece of work Henriette. Thank you for the info on using the wire wheel to get the textured look, that will come in handy I am sure. This is a much better bear than the one that stood between you and your work shop right.

                    LOL Dennis, you are so right! This one doesn't scare me at all as oppose to the one sneaking my garbage can!!

                    As an "out of topic comment" : The ice on our lake melted away last night! We have been here for 15 years and this is the earliest Spring we have ever seen!! Usually, the ice goes away between mid April and first week of May. Can't complain... welcome Spring!!!

                          Lovely! I know what you mean about having a slow time after Christmas. I've had a hard time getting back to the shop. Oh well. . . it will come.

                              I love it! Perfect wood choice and I love the texturing! Maybe someday I'll get brave enough to try it. Maybe you'd give us some "how-to's" for it? Hint! Hint! Is it just a wire brush or does it go on a power tool? And no - I'm not a natural blonde! Just mentally challenged! Hee Hee!
