Teaching system #1: The First of a Vast Library of Teaching Videos

500 days ago by John Blunt | 6 comments »

Like the first seed sown this will grow. Each addition will help what came before, and will support the next to come. This will become an integrated system of videos that entertain AND teach. It IS slow to start, and in many ways that is good. I seek advice. I know what this is. It is a first step, made with primitive tools, no experience, and an unbending intention to make good for woodworkers, small independent businesses, and resilient local economies. This video is part of something...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

787 days ago by KoryK | 13 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

819 days ago by KoryK | 11 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...

Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

840 days ago by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

854 days ago by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

862 days ago by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

885 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #402: The Benefits of Teaching

1132 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Teaching a large group of people with lots of different levels of expertise can be a challenge. I must admit, when I was approached to teach a class here on scroll sawing, I felt a little intimidated. After seeing all the beautiful projects here from so many talented woodworkers, my first reaction was to wonder what I could possibly teach them. I was first asked in March, just before leaving for the show that I lectured at in Saratoga Springs, New York. At that point it had been several...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #316: Sharing Through Teaching

1218 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am very pleased that you all liked the short videos that I posted yesterday. It shows me that there are lots of people who are interested in scroll sawing and would like to learn more about it. It also makes me want to do more teaching and help people understand how much fun and how relaxing scroll sawing can be. Earlier this week, I received some wonderful pictures from my friends Erwin and Edith (Bearpie here on Lumberjocks.) While I was away, I had received a message from Erwin tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #266: Scrollgirl Sells Sea Shells in Saratoga Springs

1274 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Alright. I couldn’t resist the title. I suppose that I have sea shells on the brain. I spent the majority of the day yesterday once again preparing for the classes that I will be teaching a the show. With most of the scroll saw things lined up, that leaves the task of getting the painting items done and ready to go. Even though I have several weeks until I leave, I need to get this all in order and done because I have to order the paint and line up the brushes and all of that. ...
