Intarsia #10: Hummingbird Day 10/ Completed

680 days ago by TripleB | 5 comments »

Well, it’s finally done!! I have learned a lot making this project, probably the biggest lesson has been patience. Most of my projects don’t take this long to make so it has been a very different experience for me, but I will admit I’m hooked! This project has been challenging, at times frustrating, but it has been fun and I really did enjoy making it. I’m pretty sure Intarsia is definitely going to be a new direction in my wood working future. I finished it with fi...

Intarsia #3: Hummingbird Day 2

702 days ago by TripleB | 2 comments »

I started cutting the lower leaves out. I found a nice piece of poplar with a nice greenish grey streak going through it (The picture just doesn’t show the actual colors well) and thought that it would work nicely for the leaves. My day today is not quite working out the way I had hoped, so I’m not sure how much more I will get too today. I am hoping to get started on some leaf shaping, If I do I will post some more pictures. If you have any questions please feel...
