  • tried inlay...now intarsia!

    After trying inlay and liking the results I decided to try intarsia too. Maybe I am striving to find a nitch or maybe just excited to try all sorts of things. In any event, I downloaded a simple free dolphin pattern from fantasticwoodworking.com and this is my result! You'll find I did go out and buy myself a couple of different woods after trying the inlay with only Poplar. This dolphin is poplar and black walnut. I did not have a dowel for the eye so I took the head off of a quilting pin and used it. Again....improvise and overcome!!! Thanks for looking. Any advice is welcome!

      Looking great!! The eye is a nice touch. Wood eyes are always a challenge to get to look right.

          Beautiful...!!!!!!
          It's obvious that you have sawdust in your blood...
          I think the eye works better than a dowel would have...
          Nicely done...!!!!!
