  • 1/3 of the Intarsia Marathon

    Over the past 3 weeks I've made 10 intarsia pieces and took two off the wall in my den for a consignment art shop in our area. Fortunately for me, the owner loved them and bought them outright instead of taking them on consignment. I didn't have time to get all the pictures taken, but the projects were: Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, Bluenose, Sea Turtle, Cardinal in the Snow, Shy Frog, Dragonfly on Cattails, Sandhill Cranes (2) Kitten in a Christmas Stocking, Covered Bridge and a Tree Frog. Here are photos of 4 of them.

                      Thanks for the kind words, everyone.
                      Rhys: The eye is perfect! I bugged the surgeon enough that she agrees that the other eye can be done some time in March. If there is a cancellation, then sooner. I can't wait.

                        Jan glad to hear your eye is doing so well and now you can get the other one done. but from the look of your work I think you could do as good as me, If you were blind. Lance

                            10 pieces in three weeks(??!!). I was lucky to get 5 pieces done in three months!

                            And, Jan, you never do poor work - no wonder the shop owner bought them all.

                              Tony, not much else got done around here. I spent my life in the shop. Now it looks like it's going to get worse. The art shop is expanding and the owner wants me to fill a 12 ft x 8 ft. wall. So much for my golf game!

                                Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...

                                Wow! That segmented bowl is amazing!

                                Betty - I have an old Darth Vader helmet somewhere. Will that substitute Bruce's get up? Failing that there always my current biker's helmet Thanks very much for the safety advice and concern. Rest assured that safety is my priority these days....
