  • 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.

            wipe on poly and tack cloth
            by dwssr2
            Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
            How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

            Betty asked: "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 to its complexity but - if they leave it laying around and a child gets a part and chokes, is that my responsibility or theirs?"...

            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...
