  • My frist Intarsia

    I made this intaria magnet from a picture in big book of intarsia woodworking page 117 by Janette Square. I changed it some and made it from redwood and walnut.
    It"s 1/2 t x31/2w x 7long I think i made it to big as I had to use 3 magnets to hold it up. Lance

        That is really adorable. Great job on your first one.

        What type of wood did you use?

              Great job! Especially getting the fit. I can't take credit for the design - I found it on a free online stained glass pattern site I believe. Have you tried the rare earth magnets? They're really small and REALLY strong. You can find them at Lee Valley. Even my kitty can't knock them off the fridge.

                  Thank's for all the kind words, I well have to get some rare earth magnets.
                  I'll be glad when I can stay on the line without running my saw as slow as it can go.

                    I'm impressed with the tightness of your seams, especially considering it's only your fifth piece...!!
                    Great piece of work...!!!!!!!

                    By the by, you can also get rare earth magnets at Harbor Frieght, if you have one local.....

                      You might actually find it easier to control if you crank the saw to full speed.

                          Nice fitting of the pieces and really nice job on shaping and sanding.

                            Hi ibber - LOL!

                            I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

                            I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                            Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                            Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
