  • Senior Class Gift

    I haven't posted in a while, but senior year is really busy and I haven't had much time. The project I am working on now is my senior class's gift to our school. It is a very large intarsia tiger that I am taking from the picture below. It will be about forty inches tall and fifty inches wide. Any tips about taking on large projects would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Kyle

    That is quite a project to take on. A lot of parts to fit together.

    I made one of Kathy Wise's pattern of a tiger with a small tiger in the grass. I spent a lot of time cutting and fitting the pieces together. I thought I would never get it done. I did cut a couple of pieces twice to get the parts to fit good.

    How far along are you on your project? I may have some tips that I use to fit parts together.

      That pic looks to have a copyright on it, not sure if you've done it already but my first tip would be to get his permission to render it if you haven't done so,just my 1/2 pennies worth.Jerry

        DukeNukem- I checked his site for the copyright regulations, and it said that educational use was okay as long as I post a photo credit with it. There is going to be a plaque with my name and the date on it and I can easily put his name on it too.

        Waynemn- I have the pattern made, but I am waiting for administration to figure out how to buy the materials, and I've been waiting for about a month.

              wowzers! That is a good looken start.
              I'm only an admirer of intarsia, and I really admire your work on this.

                        Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

                        Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                        As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

                        Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                        I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                        For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                        The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...
