  • 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.

                            That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                            The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                            Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
