  • Last Supper Intarsia

    I thought I would share my latest project with anyone interested. This is not a new pattern, I made it a couple of years ago and have been promising my wife one for some time now. It is almost three feet wide and thirty inches tall. I built the frame first and am working on filling it in earnestly this time.
    I've included a picture of one that was made by Charlie and Sharon Norris so you can see what it should look like when completed.

      I've seen a completed one in person at the woodcraft store in Cincinatti. It's hanging on the wall there. Did you design it, or is it another persons design? The lines that draw you back for a deep look are excellent, but I personally can't stand the side shots of the people. It would be a bit lessened if all the people were looking the same way, but since they are not, you can't avoid looking into the sides of the faces, which technically would be the front of their faces. The have the blur/high speed camera in slow motion hollywood effect. It's all a matter of personal opinion of course, but it drives me insane...so I always avoid side shots, and if I can't avoid it, I am sure to cleverly disguise the effect with the background...hard to do in this scene as the background continues to thin too much.
      Of course...being the last supper..your pretty much stuck with multiple side shots. I just bring it up for anyone interested in designing their own patterns to have something to think about.
      Lookin good Bruce..Keep up the great work !

        Thanks Jeff and your right, I was limited by the painting as to how I designed this one. I'm not really crazy about side views on people either. This pattern has probably been my best seller. I even sent one to Malta, Europe and Australia to name a few places.
        Also Steve I plan on posting several pictures along the way.

          Feel free to add your web address into your profile so it shows up under your messages...that's what others do. Not necessarily to sell youself, but if someone is inspired by something they know where to go...I've certainly been humming and hawing about the lighthouse design you made that Janette built and posted. My wife does like those...why bother designing my own if I like that one?

          Oh...and share some details how you tackle the pattern so people have another point of view/perspective. Everyone has a different style and technique, and it doesn't matter how good you might be, everyone can learn something new from someone else!

            Oh boy Bruce- giving yourself a taste of your own medicine I see!! I've had the priveledge of seeing the one Charlie & Sharon Norris made in person and man oh man is it impressive! Definitely post progress pictures!

            That seascape wasn't too hard to do, I really enjoyed making it. I got the bird feeder almost done- one of Bruce's designs that will be in the Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts mag next spring. I'll post it just as soon as it's finished.

                  I started this some time ago but let a lot of other things get in the way. LOL I have three more that are almost this far that will need to wait some more.

                    Re: The Last Supper

                    Hey Bruce: Walt here in the Smoky Mountain Area. I saw a version of your pattern at the Dollywood Fall Festival a couple of years ago. I don't remember the guy's name but he sure did good work. Your frame is beautiful. Did you use rosette cutters on the corner blocks? Since certain individuals seem to dictate the way things are done in our country anymore, my grandkids got their Spring Break this week, instead of at Easter. We rented a cabin in the Smokies on a creek, and it was nice, and just a little cool. Our cabin was about an hour away from Ashville, so we took in the Biltmore House. This was our third trip there and I had time to study the craftsmanship. Some of the rooms were elliptical. so the doors, and frames, and trim, and windows were all arcs of ellipses. Most of the doors were oak and about 3" thick, and they even impressed my wife Louise. Sorry, about running off at the mouth, but any woodworker would drool over that workmanship.
                    Best regards, Walt.

                      One of my brothers was there a few weeks ago Walt and made pretty much the same comments about the craftsmanship.
                      I don't have a cutter for the corners like that Walt so these I bought. My wife seems to think I have enough special tools already.

                        I have been adding table legs and setting the table. I'm getting ready to do people now. One thing I did that might help people with small pieces that have two colors in them is glue two different colors together first, draw you piece over that and then cut it out. I did this with the glasses on the table.

                              Thanks Kerry, it has a long way to go yet and I'll need to do some regular work in between.
