  • New patterns I'm working on

    When I do a new pattern I create a colorized picture of it in the colors I want used. These are two patterns I have recently made that do not have a finished piece yet.
    The Palm Sunday was made for a Gentleman in South Carolina the size he requested. It will be 36" tall and 84" long. I haven't made up my mind yet if I will offer it this size or at half that size, your thoughts would be appreciated.
    The Cross is new also but wasn't done for anyone particular. I may look for someone willing to make this one, it is one of my more simple ones.

    They're both quite beautiful, Bruce. It's certainly worth a try as far as producing a smaller pattern for the intarsia community.

      I actually have it in the smaller size ( 17" x 42", the only change I would need to make is the size of the letters and numbers labeled on the pattern, Both patterns have 480 pieces

            I have a picture of a Blue Heron I am working on to make a pattern. I am down to 3100 pieces. Don't laugh, used to be twice that..

            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.

                LOL and I get griped at for the number of pieces I put in some of mine. This may sound funny coming from me but sometimes less is better.

                    Yeah, me too.

                    I have the crazy notion that intarsia should look as real as possible and that is the way I do it. Do you realize how many feathers a Blue heron in flight has showing?
                    You have seen the picture I am working from.

                      Chuck - with the blue pine variations out there - you should be able to narrow the piece count down pretty good by using larger pieces with various streaking in them - giving it the illusion of more than one piece.

                        Hello Bruce
                        I am new to the site and just making my way around - there is so much great information. I just wanted to say thanks for offering the 2 free e-books on your web site. For someone like me just starting it really helps. I am just getting started and really enjoying making saw dust. Thanks again Gregg

                          Hello Janette Nice to meet you. I just wanted say thanks for the information you have published in Creative Woodworks & Crafts over the last several issues - it has been helpful to get me started with Intarsia. I love wood and love making saw dust. I have been collecting different wood types for a while and now found a great way to use some of this. I am looking to find an easy pattern to get started and practice. What do you suggest? I am currently working on two boxes right now for my two daughters. The tops of the boxes have an intarsia pattern and I found the pattern in Wood magazine.

                            I personally like Intarsia with a lot of pieces. I like the challenge. I too hope to see the blue heron and would also love to make the original 2 pictures!

                            I just finished The Last Supper pattern but I scaled it 150% so a range of sizes is nice sometimes!

                              Thank you Gregg, Thats what makes the difference in me doing this when someone appreciates what I have there.
