  • "Eagle's Realm" Intarsia---DONE

    Hi Everyone
    Well , after about 40 hours of cutting and fitting and redesigning , I finally got the "Eagles Realm" intarsia project complete. Took about 3 hours today to glue in all 175 pieces and apply 2 coats of spray on satin poly.The biggest hurdle was getting the depth in the background but I got it, Whew that was tough!!! Fun project.

                  Thanks everyone for the nice comments.
                  Seems all I've doing lately is fixing furniture so this project was a nice change of pace. Was really fun to do some serious scrolling but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to pay the bills

                    Wow - Amazing! It was fun watching this come together and the finished project is beautiful. What kind if wood was used for the pine trees in the background?

                    Great Job.

                      Thanks Tony
                      I used Lignum Vitae for the trees. Starts off brown but turns green with exposure to UV.

                          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

                          Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...

                          I will chime in on this discussion. I was a test cutter up until I could not because of Covid. They have not contacted me since. I still subscribe to the magazine, but there maybe one pattern I might cut in each issue.

                          As for Bob, I tried to contact Bob to no avail.
