  • 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!
