  • 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!

            Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

            Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

            Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
