  • Great Blue Heron

    Here's my rendition of Bruce W.'s heron. It is now at the art shop waiting for a new home.

    Woods are blue pine, clear pine, spalted maple, poplar, aspen, western red cedar, walnut and ebonized mahogany.

      Nope, I was growling in intarsia chat about doing this one for sale, Tammy (scrolling_grandma) piped up and said she was doing one too. Then she gave me a bad time about not posting pictures, so here it is.

      Thanks for the nice comments.

            Very nice Jan. Thanks for posting the picture. It was fun doing these at the same time. I loved the discussions that we had while completing them. I particularly love what you did with the ebonizing. I am going to have to try that one day.

              Very nice, I am glad you posted. The blue pine is one of my favorite woods to work with and really suits the Heron.

                  Thanks, everyone.
                  @Tammy: I loved the discussions too. It's really fun doing a project like this along with a friend. I learn a lot and I'm glad you feel that way as well.
                  @Rolf: I seem to use a lot of blue pine. Judy at Handsome Woodman and I are on a first name basis now. I enjoy WRC as well, not only because it's easy to cut, but because I can find it in so many different colors. I think choosing colors and learning to use them well is the heart of intarsia for me.

                    Love that blue pine! Another great piece, Jan, it looks great.
                    Maybe you and Tammy should set up shop together.

                      Great Job, Jan!

                      I've done a couple of the JGR herons, but haven't tried this one yet, I'll have to get that pattern.

                      Beautiful, work, as always.

                        Thanks again for all the nice comments.

                        @tgiro: The pattern is in the April 2010 issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts Magazine.

                            Thanks, Jim. It went to the art shop and from what Larry tells me, it's probably already sold. You can have the next one. I'll let you know when it is.

                                He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.

                                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...
