  • The Viking

    I haven't been active on this forum for awhile, but I just finished a project that I wanted to share. I found artwork online and tracked down the artist. Yannis Rubulias lives in Athens Greece and gave permission to use his artwork for the pattern. It took many hours to trace over the design and it ended up to be 350 pieces. It was certainly a challenge. Final size - 16.75 x 24.75.

              Jo, it is an amazing piece of work. Has the artist seen what you did with his work?

                Rolf, I have been sending him progress photos. He has been liking watching it come to life. His last comment was, "Awesome!". He is an artist who draws for graphic novels, and things like Dungeons & Dragons. Buxom beauties in scanty clothes, dragons, muscular warriors, that kind of thing. Several people have requested permission to use the pattern and he has agreed, as long as they are making it for personal use and not selling it. I think I have piqued his interest in doing more designs that could be made into patterns for intarsia.

                      I must confess, I used acrylic paint for the eyes. Otherwise, the rest is the natural wood color, though some is spalted.

                          This is the definition of spalting, Basically it changes the color of parts of the wood as it decays. Turners love it.
                          "Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting can cause weight loss and strength loss in the wood, the unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are sought by woodworkers." DSC_0083.JPG DSCN2830.JPG

                            Jo, that is a work of art. With Norwegian heritage, I really appreciate that piece.

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
