  • "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.

                              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.
