  • no clue where to post so here ya go....

    couldnt figure out where to stick this so i figured i'd just post it up here, my goof off project for the day, a friend of mines brother who died totally loved the Ravens, and my friends been after me forever to do something raven themed, so i did this , and have the name of his brother in a small plaque thing to go under it, what do you call projects like these ? its not fretwork, or intarsia , i guess its just a wood thingy LOL

    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your post.

        I think I'd call it segmentation. But I like wood thingie better......perhaps that should be a new forum name.

            Also, just the record.... Cathie, did you know that if you can cut like that, then you can do inlay. The diciplines needed to make those sharp turns is just what you need.
            I'd say jump in the challenge. It might be a game changer for you....

              I know what ya mean Cathie, I create a lot of wood thingies too - lol! You did a great job on it...she will luv it for sure! Did you use pine or mdf? Did you actually cut individual pieces or did you detail with dremel (rotary tool)? I tried doing some detail on pine and found the grain to be a that's why I just stick to MDF as it details, sands and paints so nice.

              BTW - your painting and finishing skills have come a long have that down to a science/art these days. Keep up the great projects and thanx for sharing!

                Hey Cathie - do you really want an answer to your question! !

                Well of course I'm kidding and to help you decide take a look at

                I suspect your piece is segmentation but check out the post and tell us.

                Whatever the classification its a nice looking piece and will sure to be treasured by the family.

                  Thanks everyone I am hoping to give it away today and hope it goes over well

                  Jim i have always wanted to try inlay but shyed away from it. i looked through the tutorial last night, now, once i have it figured out where i can change my table degree and get it put back easily i think i just might do that , i have insane troubles making sure my table is square and dread if i changed it lol

                  Kim, I cut this out of pine, each section is its own piece, i do this to make my painting easier . I have done some detail work with the dremel for projects to and have the same dislike for pine when i do. Mdf is something i have wanted to give a whirl as well but havent gotten around to yet

                  Jim-mex ROFl thanks for the laugh this morning lol Im guessing it would be segementation to now, somehow i have over looked this part of the forum since i have been here, hows that happen ? LOL

                    Cathie, glad you came to our little world of intarsia, segmentation and inlay. Before intarsia I made a few segmentation pieces. But my cutting wasn't near as good as yours. You have done a beautiful job. And come back with more things to show.

                      Thanks for the advice Linda, I may have to do that. The future bride and groom are avid golfers so I would like to do something special for them. Also I am Godfather to the bride and I'm very humbled that she asked me to do this for her.

                      Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

                      Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...
