  • Angel with maple burl wings finished

    I finished my angel last night. The design is from a stained glass pattern by Anna Danowska. Wood used - maple burl for the wings; curly cherry for the gown; aspen for the trim; walnut hair; avodire for skin. The background was made by gluing maple and birch veneer edging in rows on 1/4 bb plywood, then cutting into strips at 45 degrees. Frame is afromosia. This is a gift for my daughter-in-law.

    Stunning. Love the back ground you mounted it on. She will love it.

      Nice job! Think about in a hundred years or so folks will look at it in awe the same way they do museum art.

        What can I say.....
        . The wood selection is great
        . This is the best shaping that I have seen. The folds in the clothes are so lifelike.
        . The background is unique...what did you use.

        This is one of be best that I have seen.

          Quartz, Jo described how she did the backer in her post abov.

          Jo as I stated on Facebook this is an absolutely stunning piece. The design and your interpretation with the woods you used.
          Has your daughter in law seen it yet? I would have a tough time giving that one away.

            Rolf, I plan to (selfishly) keep it for a little while before I give it to her. I don't even want to show it to my daughter because she can't keep a secret!

              That is a beautiful masterpiece! One of the most beautiful intarsia pieces I have ever seen.

                You've outdone yourself again, Jo. The frame and background really bring the piece alive.

                  Can’t add anything new, but can add my admiration for an incredible job both on the intarsia itself and on its presentation.

                              Well done. Elk, are one of the most beautiful animals in North America as far as I am concerned.

                              Lee, we have a pen turner displayed at ArtCrafters. Many of the pens are $25 and we sell maybe 4 - 5 each month. I am sure at a place like Knoxville he could more than double the price....

                              We could not do that in our kitchen the ceiling and walls are way too crooked. So to fool the eye some of our cabinets go all of the way up with trim molding the others are lower also with crown molding. There is no continuous line to catch the eye.

                              WHAT? We’re taking them down? Bruce decided he should have put them flush with the ceiling so we’re taking them down and raising them 1/2”!!! Do you know how heavy these are? He decided he wanted as narrow as possible, or no, molding at the top at all. And yes, Scott they have stuff in them.😲😲...
