      It is my final design but I was inspired by one, much larger, that I have, made of metal. I think Intarsia is making images with different types of wood. That is what I did here. I know it is not much like other intarsia I have seen or done but it was a fun project.

          Jim -- Very nice!! I've a couple of questions. Did you make a full-size pattern? How easy/hard is it to work with mesquite? I have some, but haven't found the right project for it yet.

            I found an image of an Acacia Tree on line and enlarged it to what I wanted in "Paint". I drew up the leaf pattern and stack cut them 3 at a time. They are 3/16" thick Mesquite. Mesquite machines well, a bit like oak.

                I sold that one and I am working on two others. These will be Cedar and yellow pine and Mesquite and yellow pine.

                    So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                    I like the fact...

                    Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                    Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.

                    Two great customer service stories on this forum in a week. There is hope. Even in 2020.
