    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.

                            Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                            I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                            Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                            That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                            Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
