      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.

                    I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                    Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                    With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
