  • Sunrise or Alien Planet?

    So I found a piece of Poplar that had such neat colors in it from white to deep purple and decided it would be great background piece for an intarsia sunset/sunrise. I taped a piece of white poplar to it and free hand sawed the sky meeting the river and the mountains along the river. Got them sanded a bit and then turned it upside alien planet with 2 moons appeared. So which is it? Sunrise.....or alien planet?? Imagination is such a wonderful thing!
    I have not quite finished this project yet. Its not even glued together yet...just thought I'd share.

    Thanks for looking! Tammy

    My first thought was they resemble bubbles in a stream. Anyway it is a beautiful piece of art.

      I agree with the bubbles. I see bubbles like looking around a coral reef.

        Great piece of wood and you did a nice job with it.

          I cut a bunch of chakte viga and leopardwood pieces for the Viking project and the blade seems pretty good yet. I imagine if I were to only cut softer hardwoods (?) the blade would last quite a long time. Still - $25.00 is a lot more than the cost of standard scroll saw blades....

          Very nice! I really like your setup especially for the dust collection. I would have to figure out a way to re-weld the blade.
          And Oh to have wall space and organizational skills!

          Most of the cut outs were done with the scroll saw.
          Karl I have a couple of power carvers. The classic Dremel with a flex shaft I then bought a Ram Power carver, they both use 1/8 shank bits. I have a bunch of carbide cutters from when our Printed circuit board facility at work was dismantled....
