728 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 #2: Hummingbird Day 1

My Hummingbird Intarsia pattern arrived today, quicker than I thought it would, which is always a pleasant surprise. And I actually did take a couple pictures of it. First off, the pattern came from Judy Gale Roberts at www.intarsia.com. I ordered two patterns and they both came neatly packed in a nice mailing tube. The patterns came complete with instructions and an 8 1/2” x 11” color photo of how the finished project should look. The pattern itself is printed on a heavy tracing ...
