  • Newest Intarsia Commission

    Hi Everyone
    Been a while since I've posted anything new but here is a sneak peek at my newest commission.Titled--"Eagle's Realm" has a 16" x 20" cherry frame with purpleheart inlay. Woods used so far; Walnut, Holly, Ebony, Yellowheart, Spalted Beech, Fishtail Oak. 50 pieces so far. I'm still designing the background scenery part of the pattern. I like to shape, sand and apply a coat of finish as I go on these type of projects. I foresee between 200 and 300 pieces depending on how elaborate the background gets. Stay tuned .

                  Wow. The eagle looks great but what gets me is the rocks. So realistic. Looks like it will fly right off the wall. Great job. Keep it up.

                    Thanks everyone for the comments.
                    I added a few trees to the background yesterday. Each tree is made from lignum vitae and Peruvian walnut. The lignum is brown now but will turn a vivid green in time. I use CA glue to hold the pieces of the trees together to form a single unit.100 pieces so far.

                            Fantastic work, Mike!

                            If it isn't finished - I love to see the finished work.

                              Mike: This certainly is a beautiful project. Thanks for sharing the progressions with us. The addition of the trees has intensified the mountain perspective and makes the eagle even more impressive. Excellent workmanship and design.

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                                Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                                Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
