  • 3rd intarsia

    I would like to present you my 3rd intarsia. It is the beginning of the 2 little lovebirds, the pattern is from Kathy Wise.

    I had started with the other bird and failed - nothing fitted and I put it away for some days, thinking I had gotten above my abilities. But after a while I decided not to give up, put away the remnants of the failed beginning and started anew with this one.

    What you see is really the beginning: the parts are scrolled, roughly shaped and only assembled, not glued together. The body is applewood, the head padouk, the leaves are ovengkol. I will go on now with the branch and afterwards try a second attempt on the other bird.

    Angelika - this looks very good. Don't give up - just practice, practice, practice. I can't wait to see if finished - it's going to be outstanding.

        Very good work, Angelika. Finish the shaping while looking at the picture of the finished bird as you go. This is going to be lovely. Your wood choices are spot on and your cutting is nicely done.

            Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

            Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
