  • Aries mask

    Worked this weekend on cutting my mask. It still needs sanding but I wanted you to see how I've arranged the woods and colors on it. It is my first of either segmentation or intarsia. I can see all the work and thinking that goes into a project. I am proud of this one.
    I thank Sue and Toni for the pattern that gave me a chance to learn something new.

          Looks real good so far Diane. It's nice to see that you stayed mostly with natural woods too.

              Nice job, Diane. Do you plan on raising any of the pieces?

                      By all means, finish it, and take your time to keep up the good work. I hope when I get to my first serious intarsia it turns out as good as yours. And I, too, like your choice of NATURAL woods and their colors - only coloring the eye, and that adds a bit of interest.

                        I will finish the mask for sure. The only reason the eye is blue is because I wanted it to be black but didn't have any wood that was pure black so I decided that if I was going to color it then it might as well be something outstanding.
                        My daughter who is a redhead with brown eyes always told me that a redhead with blue eyes is rare and and awesome so because I put the padauk on top it seemed that the blue eye fit.

                            Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                            Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                            My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                            I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
