  • My puffin coming home....

    My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset.

    As for some of you , the challenge for me , is that I have to do everything, I have no plan , for the first time!
    So I have to set the frame to fit the Puffin size and for what I want to add around it!
    So try this, that , this again, hummmm not quite , let’s see..... hummm, try something else..... etc. For the first time , this Intarsia will be mine , a creation. I am not use with that, I call myself a “copycat” or copying machine ! But It is fun !

    So the woods used, are Bubinga for the sky and sun, amaranth for the water, ebony for the rock, mahogany for the ground and cherry for the frame. Finish with Osmo oil.
    This piece is 15" X 12".
    And if you look closely you will see that my puffin is also very proud of his different look ....with his black stripe that no one else have....result of planeur fault in handling...!
    Very happy with my first creation ! I will surely try another one, lot of research , steps and interrogations, but I like very much intarsia.

            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...
