  • Welcome Addition

    I think this section has a lot of potential!! We have a few new members that are awesome intarsians and I'm sure many others that have been a part of this forum for longer will make this a valuable addition to the weath of information shared here.

    It's a great addition! I love seeing the artwork that some of the members post. I would like to try intarsia, but need a simple pattern to start with!

      I don't know Sue, don't you think we have enough sections already. We're starting to get posts with people not knowing where to post things. Next the fretters will want a dedicated fretwork section, and the compounders might want a compound section, it could go on and on. What about the newbies who don't even know what intarsia is, they might not go to that section. And what about the bragging section, do intarsia artists post their work in the intarsia section or the bragging section?
      OK, I'm gonna shut up now, I only look at the new posts and didn't even know there was a new section until you pointed it out.

          I totally agree with Sue. It's nice to see the kind of work others can do, that I can't. It gives me something to drool over. I'm thoroughly enjoying the new pictures in the gallery. Eventually, maybe I'll even give it a shot. It opens up more options for us simple scrollers.

            I set this area up specifically for intarsia for two reasons...
            1. Intarsia is different enough from the other types of scrolling (a variety of woods, more sanding and shaping, etc.)

            2. Some of the people on the Intarsia forum that I invited to migrate to our site were intimidated by the size of our message board, so I thought I'd give them a little area to get their feet wet before venturing out into the message board at large. Basically, they can ask questions here and expect to get a intarsia-related perspective.

              Seems like a good idea to me - I tend to read most things on here anyhow .. As Im sure people have noticed most of what i do is fretwork style but I'm always interested to see what everyone else produces, even if it's something I haven't tried.

                Good idea to have a separate forum for intarsia. I don't do it but you never know. I do read everything on this board. I still have a lot to learn and I am interested in everything.

                  I'm like Marsha, I didn't notice that we have a new section.
                  It will be nice to have it for intarsia.

                    Great to see a section on Intarsia so soon after announcing it in the MSN group a few weeks ago...

                    The variety of hobby's that can be done with a scrollsaw is a lot...Intarsia is certainly one of them and certainly a good addition to this forum...I only joint this forum a few days ago and have read and learnt a lot in other threads.

                    Keep scrolling, Danny

                        Thanks for having this added to our forum--I know I will have this my main place for reading up on how tos and for asking many stupid questions I will have.
                        I love intarsia and it is a blast to do but more of a headache to do than fretwork but when I need to know I won't have to search for the answers anymore--thanks

                            I, as a new member who does intarsia, really appreciate this new section. I think it will help some people as Bob said "get their feet wet" in this new forum. Thank you Bob!

                            Theresa, there are a couple e-books for beginners at intarsia.net. These are great for beginners with pattern and step by step instructions and they are free. You might want to give them a look.

                              New Board

                              Hi everyone! I'm Janette, one of the managers of the MSN Intarsia site. Many of you know we've been having lots of problems with MSN and Bob generously offered to create a message board for us, as well as anyone who does, or is interested in learning Intarsia. I'll have to warn you - it is an addictive sport! On MSN, we have a great group of people and many of us are very happy to share information with new folks. There is a lot to learn by exchanging ideas.

                              Thank you Bob!

                                Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
