  • inlay on a box lid

    Yesterday I whipped out this box for a niece's 8th BD. I used some clip art for the parrot. I'm still 3-d impaired, so really need to think about the angles for the holes and the direction of the cuts. Thanks to the other Jim's for the tutorial and for giving me courage to try multiple piece inlays. There are more complex things that I want to tackle, but I needed to get this one done and in the mail.

            Nice Job Jim. I really like the parrot. The inlay looks great.
            I tried the inlay challenge & I also still need to think about the drilling angle & cuts.

                Thanks for the comments. It seems that I've been out of the shop way too long. Good to get back in there.

                        Nice job. I have the same problems with drilling the holes and direction of cut. I think in time it will just get to be a natural thing for us.

                          Today I received a phone call from an excited girl telling me how she likes birds and loves the box. Now that is my kind of payday.

                            My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                            Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

                            My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
