  • Intarsia and Segmentation Bear

    This is a piece I did a couple years ago which uses both intarsia and segmentation. The uniform was segmentation, spray painted pine. The hat was intarsia and painted. The face is Western Red cedar which uses relief cutting to fit the face. Buttons are dowels painted silver and the sword is intarsia.



    I have found, just like the case of Flat and Spiral blade, both can be done on the same pattern.

    The Pattern can be found at Wooden teddy bear with the name Marine Bear. I promoted him to the Air Force.

    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.

    Very nice piece, Chuck. Being former Air Force, I appreciate the promotion you gave the bear.

        That's really good. I never saw that pattern before...I have a bunch of other teddy bears in my daughters room. Nice job on it, and good painting too...that's a perfect blue.

                  I would say that the best way to describe segmentation is that a pattern is cut from a single piece of wood, which goes a long way to making sure the pieces fit together and then stained or painted after shaping.
                  If you paint it then you can't see the wood grain which in segmentation is a good thing

                    segmentation

                    Bruce pretty much hit the nail on the head, all except for the last line. I still love the look of the woodgrain in segmentation pieces. I will attach a segmentation photo. Its all cut from the same piece of maple. The pieces are stained the desired color, then reassembled like a puzzle, and glued together,raising some parts and lowering others. It adds a lot of 3-d effect to a simple piece of wood. The pattern for this is designed by Neal Moore, and is available for free to 2 year subscription subscribers from SSWC . Also, to the left is a picture of Neal Moores book, 'Animal portraits in wood" http://www.foxchapelpublishing.com/p....cfm?sku=2933s I highly reccomend this book!

                      Thank you Bruce and Dale.....I am still trying to find my way around here.....I had posted a picture of my first project on the brag page and called it intarsia when it is actually segmentation......although I coloured it with a wash so you can still see the grain.....Dale I checked out the picture the photo of yours and love the racoon....he is so cute

                        I must admit to being a little red faced here. After reading your reply to my question about segmentation I thought that I recognized the picture of the raccoon you sent the link for. I went back over my issues from Scrollsaw and found the article for it in the Ultimate Scrolling Patterns Collection. My first effort was the boot they show in that book. In my hurry to get to the project I didn't read all of the articles and so missed the explanation on segmentation. Of course my partner is having fun teasing me because I always read everything through before I proceed but of course failed to do so here. I thank you for the info as it sent me back to the articles and patterns in that issue......

                          Peggie, what I just loved about your last post , was,, that you was in such a hurry to get it done. thats what happens here. we see something, skip right over stuff, and say dang I can do that. and go for it. thats just how alot of these projects and woodworking things come about. we take from stuff, and dang, we seem to add to them some how. and create something new. sooooooooo my new friend. you just might be are new woodworking friend to creat something new. its not your misunderstanding, but your perseption, on how things are done. and thats just how things happen. Its my beleaf. that is how segmentation got started. This Guy Named Kerry Shirts. was playing with is work, left it , and came back, to find his cuttings was raised up in some places, after glueding them. and he saw the dimition. and said dang. this is cool. and wala, segmentation was created. so he did somemore exsperiance. and came up with patterns to go with what he found. and low and behold. became famis. the book scroll Saw Art. came about. He buddyed up with his friend, Patrick Spielman,(well known scroller. ) who brought back the art of scrolling to us all now. and segmentation was born. so you see, you are right up there with all of us. learning, and haveing fun. your friend Evie

                            Now you confuse me too ! I thought Intarsia & segmentation were both cut out of a pattern in pieces, then assembled. That's basic, then the difference begins-- Intarsia is cut from different species of wood & segmentation is cut from one kind of wood. Like Pine or basswood etc. The Intarsia is finished in it's natural state & seg. is finished either in stain, paint or other finishes. I never understood segmentation cut different than Intarsia, am I wrong or is that correct. Somebody needs to define very detailed differences of the two, so we don't all get the wrong idea. We are not all pro's !! goofytoo

                              My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles.
