  • Looking for Intarsia Idea?

    Hello everybody,

    I need help finding a Intasia pattern idea! One of my son's has just been honored as "Rookie of the year" on the Fire Department. He is an EMT and has a big department ceremony coming-up later in June. I would like to make him an Intarsia project with an Ambulance, Fire Truck, and/or Firefighter incorporated into it. I know that JGR has a Firefighter, but something always looked not quite right about the perspective or maybe I am just to picky?

    Any idea's will help and thanks in advance!

    Congrats! I know you must be popping every button on your shirt. Not exactly Intartia-ready but I think they have potential.

    The BW image is one I created for a glass etching project but it may give you some ideas...

    Also, look at the Firefighter post in this same area.

        Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

        There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

        As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

        I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

        John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

        Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

        I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
