  • Any more takers for Jim's inlay primer please?!

    Just a nudge post to invite members, inexperienced or otherwise, to join in and have a go at producing the inlay piece our pal JimSawyer has posted in the stickies section

    Jim's come up with a really great step by step guide to producing a cut inlay piece and all it takes is a bit of patience and a couple of hours of free time. It really is suitable for all scrollers, even complete novices and is so easy to make I even made one myself!

    So please lend a hand by not only trying this tutorial out but also in appreciation of Jim giving his time to come up this project.

    PS - Jim is not paying me for posting this thread - I just can't bear the thoughts of seeing a grown man cry when I remind him that I have had no problems getting folks to join my segmentation and intarsia challenges! - which reminds me Jim, what happened to your Santa? Christmas is coming around again my friend - LOL!

    I have been wanting to learn inlay, but I haven't had time to watch the tutorial. I was on vacation and now I'm working over-time. Maybe I will find some scroll saw time this weekend. I know that I want to cut some of the of those little bird houses. Maybe I will listen to Jim's tutorial and see if I have some time to make another type of bird.

      I agree with Tango - my attention has been directed somewhere else lately. I do want to master inlay and I know it will be easier using the resources of this group! I'll get there!!

        I've been up to my ankles in alligators lately. I really want to give it a try.

        I have more birdhouses glued up and have to get those cut as well.
        I just got a couple more orders yesterday, those always take precedence over fun cutting.

        With the heat lately I had almost nil for shop time available. Now the valley is filled with smoke from 3 major wild fires surrounding the area. I too will get to the inlay soon.

          Sorry Jim. Not ready to attempt to tackle inlay yet. I got a lot on my plate right now with intarsia/segmentation projects. Maybe at a later time.

            Almost done with my inventory for a large show in October. Then I get to have some fun. Can't wait to give it a try.

              I'll get at it after I get back from running away from home. Busy packing for the escape!

                  We will get a copy of the pattern and give it a try soom. This would be a good way to use some of Larry's wood.

                    This is something that I have wanted to learn but never had the guts to try ... this just might nudge me over the edge.

                      Jim, Ive been tied up with some orders and also I am helping to renovate my brother's house so that he can put it on sale, but I promise I will have a shot at Jim's inlay tutorial in the next few days. It's something I have wanted to do for a while and JimSawyers Tutorial looks the way to go, it's really well put together. Thanks to both you Jims for your hard work.
                      BTW Jim ironically my daughter asked me last week if I had could do "one of them Santa's what climb up the strings" for them for Christmas. Just shows a great pattern never grows old. A bit like us eh? -lol

                        I'm finishing up a project, and have an order to fill, but do plan on doing some inlay soon.

                          You people sitting on the fence just have to try this. With Jim's tutorial it is so easy you will not believe it once you make your first piece.

                          Beware though, once you do one you will want to do more and more. It is addictive.

                            I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                            Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                            Thanks to all for the kind comments.

                            Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                            From my side I'm really pleased with how my kitchen extension idea worked out....
