  • "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.

                          I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                          I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                          Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
