Intarsia #15: Lilly Cross Day 4

565 days ago by TripleB | 5 comments »

BONUS POINTS at the end! Well I finally had success with making the stem, and now things are moving along a little quicker. I guess the third time is the charm! If you’ve been following this blog you’ll know that making the wrap around stem has been my nemesis on this project, and it took me 3 tries to get it the way I wanted it to be. The below pictures are the completed stem (minus some more sanding). This next one shows the result that I needed for the wrap around st...

Intarsia #14: Lilly Cross Day 3

571 days ago by TripleB | 0 comments »

When things turn bad, it seems to snowball! In my last post I was saying how happy I was that everything was going so well (Yes I know that post was a while ago at this point, sorry bout that), and it was, until I tried to lay the Lilly out to match the flower to the stem. It simply would not work because the stem was not thick enough. The problem is, I was so concerned about wrapping the stem around the back, I never considered how high it would need to be on the front. Whoops! I intend to l...

I’m starting a new project but wasn’t going to blog about it because I thought it would be boring.

I decided that documenting my thought process and figuring out how I’m going to actually accomplish it will give me reference for later if I decide to do it again. What better way to do that than with the blog, so here I sit. This pattern comes fr...

Intarsia #10: Hummingbird Day 10/ Completed

597 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 #1: New Intarsia Blog for TripleB

621 days ago by TripleB | 5 comments »

I really am starting to enjoy this Intarsia art, and since this is new to me, I thought I would start logging everything into a blog. I have always admired and been a little intimidated by the Art of Intarsia, I think that I thought only somebody that has been behind a scroll saw for many years would have the talent to do it. As being I’ve only been using a scroll saw for a little over a year, I figured it was simply above my abilities. I finally decided to just give it a shot, after...
