  • Bass

    I started making this last year and had to quit. Then I lost the pieces I had cut. So started another one a month or so ago and finally finished it. The bass is green poplar with some stain added, aspen, and red cedar. The lure is red cedar and canary wood. Back board is pine with red like morning or evening sun, and blue pine for the water.
    Any comments welcome. Pattern is Judy Gale Roberts from "Small Intarsia"

      The three colors on the back board really set off the fish! Love the blue pine for the water, with the red sunrise/sunset color in the center. Nice!

            Wow, this is one really sings Fran. I love the whole picture, but your choice of background wood really makes this intarsia special to me.

            Now if I can just replace the guy in the boat with a guy in waders and a trout to replace the Bass, i will have a nice gift for my flyfisherman son.

                  Really nice Fran! Great work! Like everyone else the background really sets it off! You should enter that in the State Fair, registration/entry forms need to be mailed late July, all the info is online.

                    Very nice project with a lot of thought going into the presentation.
                    I especially like your contouring of the intarsia itself.

                      Fran - That is some fishy story A very, very nice fishy.
                      That was the same pattern I used for my very first intarsia project that I gave to my Dad as a BD gift. It still hangs on the wall in his den. Your fish fits together a lot better than mine. I also like the selection of wood that used in the back-ground.

                        That is beautiful! Is the fish inset or is an overlay? The background looks great, the blending of the different woods is seamless.

                          It will be delicious on the BBQ -- Oh, wait. ..

                          Great job, Fran

                                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

                                Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                                As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
