  • Intartia Patterns

    I was in Michael's today and saw some prints in the frame area that seemed almost tailor made for an intaria project. One had Pinocchio with Jimmy Cricket in the corner w/ umbrella opened. There was one of Mickey Mouse with an American Flag in the background. Another of Bambi as well as several others. Print size was about 10x12. The layout of the lines just begged to be made into wood.

    Hi Mike,
    Nothing wrong with using poster prints for patterns! Micheal's and store's like Hobby Lobby offer many print's and Intarsia idea's! Year's ago, I started looking at and using some of the Coloring Books on the market too! I draw most of my own patterns now, but still look at poster rack dislays at Wal-Mart and Wahlgen Drug stores for idea's!

      watch yourselves fellas. I've been forewarned about making disney stuff, if you plan on making it for a gift for someone, thats probally ok, but Disney and harley davidson are two big ones on the copy writing loop holes.

      Just thought id say something (you probally already know this info.) very good idea mike, btw.

        LOLRH, oh Mike don't you just feel compelled make it out of wood? It is simply amazing what is out there to inspire our craft.

        Take care

          I wasn't just referring to Disney. There's a whole lot of photo's and pic's out there to open the pattern door to Intarsia! I do respect copyright laws, but thanks for the warnng to the unknowing!

            A person who cuts intarsia finds potential patterns in every picture. I have about ten calenders with pictures that will become intarsia. They are for myself and I can't sell then but it sure is fun

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

              Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
              a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
              Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

              They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

              Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

              Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

              I found this information on fuses in general.

              Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
