    This is the project for JGR advanced class. Just took it last week, and had to do some final details on it at home. Got it glued to the backer and the finish sprayed on. In the advanced class the attention to detail is really more involved. From shaping the eye, to pleats in the dress and the face is really involved. I am very pleased with the final result. I highly recommend taking a class from any of our expert intarsia folks. It will take your work to another level.
    Woods used, butternut, walnut, basswood, paduak, cedar, maple, cherry, mahogany, and birch. The eye is a sliver of, holly, koa, and rosewood.
    Almost for got the lips, they are makore.
    Now where to put it?

                      Thanks for all the comments. But much credit goes to JGR who walked us through the shaping of this. We had to have the pattern cut and ready before the class. Then we spent 3 days of shaping it. But now I see the big picture for shaping a face, which is the hardest part. The next one I want to try is a frontal face, the nose will be the tricky part.

                          I would also love to be in one of her classes and I do live in America. But soooo Faaarr away. Maybe a Western class, OK?

                          When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                            Now,...

                            It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                            Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
