  • 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

                  Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                  Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                  My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                  I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                  Was it a good idea.....?...

                  Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                  The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                  I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
