  • Finally tried segmentation

    Just figuring out the do's and don'ts . It started out as a fret piece so there are unneeded gaps around the nose. I also should have used a blade with less kerf.
    I was trying different burrs and what I like best is 3'4" flexible sanding disc for carving and shaping. My good dremel that fits all my attachments has been sounding funny and went up in a ball of fire and smoke and the one i ended up using is on it's last leg. I hope I can finish before it dies.
    Both the piece and backer are 1/4" poplar. I used small pieces of 1/8" bb for spacers to raise sections.
    I'm really enjoying and I'm interested to see how far I can go.

              Segmentation is a gateway to Intarsia.

                  Haven't stopped on this project. I've been very busy and working on this for fill in. I'm also been tossing ideas back and forth with Mom (Frieke) Looks like the bag will be shaped from a solid block then split and the inside hollowed and shaped wit the rest of the kitty inside and reassembled. As always ideas welcome.

                    Hey Rob - this is getting interesting. I love the way you are developing this as you go and running with ideas. Exactly my style of working - but be warned. It leads you up crazy avenues - LOL!

                      I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                      I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                      Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
