  • First Intarsia Piece

    I have just completed my first piece. I did it with a bandsaw with a half-inch blade and a lot of sanding, need a scroll saw immediately! Thought it turned out all right considering. I now know what to expect for future project. I found it very rewarding to take three different scrap boards and end up with a nice piece. This is the free tulip from sawbird.

        Great job! I can't imagine doing that well myself with a 1/2" band saw blade!
        You are right, a scrollsaw will definitely be nice to work with compared to the
        band saw.

              Nice job and an excellent starter pattern! Many people start with far too complex a pattern. This one has you cutting some curves and doing some shaping but not too much. You did VERY well, considering the blade you were using! I only use 1/2 bandsaw blades for resawing. No curves! Best of luck with you next project. It is certainly possible to use a bandsaw, but definitely get a smaller blade!

                  Great for your first project! If you can't afford a scroll saw, get a 1/4" or 1/8" bandsaw blade. Will cut curves alot easier!!!

                    Welcome to intarsia. Very nicely done for your first. When you get a scrollsaw it will be so much easier to cut the pieces.

                        Thanks for all the encouragement. I have already placed an order for a DeWalt 788, definitely a needed tool.

                          I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots. At this rate, I figure I will be doing good if I get sometime this summer. Glad hubby got his, figure he was my biggest...

                          Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
