  • 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.

                          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.

                            Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

                            What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

                            I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                            Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                            BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
