  • Military intarsia, work in progress

    I recently did a kickstarter campaign to do a bunch projects for my military folks. I have about 10 pieces in total, and wanted to share the progress of it. The pictures below are still work in progress, but all they need at this point is some lacquer, maybe a clear UV protectant, and a frame. I am planning on making the frames myself as well.

    Feel free to check out the kickstarter as well. It was a fun campaign and I enjoyed doing it! Each piece has brought a new kind of challenge and I've been trying new techniques to overcome them. With this series of projects I've had to learn and use woodburning, carving (with hand chisels, not power carving or shaping), and inlay.

      Very nice work! I've done two or three custom unit crests for military or retired military. The fun begins when trying to make small fleur de lis that a lot of the Cav and armor units love.

      Keep it up.

            Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way. Where does the responsibility of the maker of an item end and the responsibility of the purchaser begin? My sealife puzzle is purchased by older people due...

            I was afraid some of my puzzles would not pass the test, but they did.. (I have some that I sell that would not (they are from the magazine) so I am not going to make them for sale anymore as I am worried about sales of those.. Maybe the magazine should have a statement of warning of small pieces if...

            Which is why I quit making toys. I used to make a lot of wood toy cars & trucks with the 3/4", 1", and 1-1/2" wheels. I, also made a lot of wood toy trains. Everything was made out of hard woods and really glued well.

            And it makes no difference if the kid that get's them...

            Then the puzzle in this issue would not be for children under 3 due to the 2 small pieces. I don’t paint. I don’t put wheels on things, most of my kids puzzle pieces are too big to fit in their mouth. It’s that “one” that will get you. Thanks for printing excellent info. Guess I’ll just...
