  • Horse Head

    I found an image of a horse head on line and made this intarsia image of it. It is made of Oak, Pine, Mahogany, Mesquite and Ebony and is 21" tall I used 1/4" ply for backer board and made a hanger for it of old band saw blade. The woods are all 3/8" thick. I used a spray can from Walmart "triple Thick Glaze" as a finish.

          Very well done, Jim. Love the use of color and grain. And the well-placed knots are quite nice. You proved that knotty can be nice.

              Jim, it's beautiful! I love the colors plus I'm partial to horses. I just love them.

                Beautiful Jim. I wish you guys would quit posting pix of these. If you keep it up I'm gonna have to try it and I've got so many irons in the fire now I feel like the Ponderosa at branding time.
                GREAT WORK

                  I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                  Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                  Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                  Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                  The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                  WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
