  • Small geese - intarsia project

    Just finished these 2 small Canadian geese. They are both from JGR. When you buy the large geese patterns, there is also a simplified version, with less pieces so we can make them in a smaller size. Both are approximately 10.5 " x 6 ".

    Wood used: Cherry and Santos Rosewood for the wings. Basswood, Peruvian walnut, Black walnut, Butternut, Pine and Santos rosewood for the bodies/heads.

    Those are not too difficult to make. I used a satin finish.

                  I WAITED patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
                  He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
                  And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
                  He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
                  Many will see and fear
                  And will trust in the Lord.
                  Psalm 40:1-3

                              Lovely job, Henriette, as always. I like how you've made the wings with two pieces, rather than the one that the pattern (small version) has. It adds some definition that the single-piece wing lacks (the way I've always made them), and yet is still far less complex than the larger version where you cut all the feathers individually. You have a very good eye! I just might be changing my ways.
