  • 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

                                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                                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.....
