  • Fruity magnets for retirement gift

    One more thing to post today. We are having a retirement party for a lady in our office tomorrow. She has commented several times on my fruity magnets so I made a set for her. And I made the whole set this time!! The grapes were not easy!! Pattern from our Henriette made about 1/2 the original size.


    Grapes: purple heart and poplar
    Pear: tigrillo, poplar and peruvian walnut
    Apple: redheart, poplar and peruvian walnut
    Banana: yellowheart and peruvian walnut

    It was a productive couple of weeks for me!! Thanks for looking!

    If there is one thing I can make perfect every time it is sawdust.

          Love the colors, Cathy. It's a lovely and thoughtful gift. Come to think of it, I retired a few years ago . . .

            The plans for the fruit magnets are available from Henriette Corbeil. She has a website that she uses for selling patterns and finished intarsia pieces.

              Very nicely done. The selection of wood is great.

                        I used those basswood blanks a lot some time ago, I found that unless you first use a coat or two of sanding sealer, they do not take stain real well. Often they turn out blotchy - technical term.. And sometimes they still do after the sanding sealer

                        How many times will I make a cut for inlay, then forget to reset the blade angle to 90 degrees? UGH!
