  • "Eagle's Realm" Intarsia--Almost There

    Hi everyone
    I know that lots of you have been following the progress of my newest intarsia--"Eagles Realm". Well, I'm just about there. I'm still not happy with some of the scenery on the right hand side so will change some of the pieces to correct the depth that I'm looking for, plus more sanding and detail carving and glueing everything in place. 175 pieces. Walnut, Holly, Spalted Beech, Spalted Sycamore, Yellowheart, Ebony, Fishtail Oak, Poplar, Lignum Vitae, Purpleheart, Afromosia, Vera wood, Peruvian Walnut, Tulipwood, Maple, Bloodwood

          It reminds me of the song America The Beautiful, and that is what you should name that piece.

          For purple mountain majesties.

            I agree with Woodsman. I think this is my favorite eagle pattern.

              That's downright beautiful. I agree that the piece should be named America the Beautiful. It's perfect.

                I agree with Woodsman as well. Your eagle is downright beautiful, Mike. It's a wonderful piece of work.

                            I love it Mike ! Beautiful piece. I have a question too. I assume you made your own frame, & I was wondering how you achieved the color stripe? I like to make my own frames & I really liked this one. You did a fantastic job on the entire piece. Thanks for showing us.

                              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
