  • 3.rd intarsia - next step

    Thank you for your friendly comments.

    Here is the first bird - the parts are sanded and oiled. Later (much later...) I will put on a shiny coating. But first of all the second bird has to be scrolled - the one I gave up earlier. I hope this time it will come to a better ending

    Hi Angelika - your bird is turning out into a beautiful project.
    One suggestion if you don't mind. When it comes to the finish try experimenting on some scrap oiled and shaped wood with both satin and shiny finishes. Usually for this type of work the reflections that glossy finishes give tend to distract from your shaping work and the general colour and grain of the piece and your scrolling and shaping will look much better with a satin finish rather than an overly glossy one.

    Looking forward to seeing the final result.

      You've done a great job cutting and shaping this bird! I agree with Jim, a satin finish would give it a lice look. Too shiny and it detracts from the wood work you've done.

        Semi gloss is a good choice.

          Thank you, I will buy semi gloss and do as Jim suggested and try on some pieces of scrap. Good to get those hints!

            The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

            Now,...

            It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

            Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
