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

05-03-2012 03:02 AM 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!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM 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

04-11-2012 01:20 AM 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.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 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...

"Automaton" #6: It's .........Aliveeeee!!!!!!!

01-18-2012 06:37 AM by mpounders | 21 comments »

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad. Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for eeveryone’s encourag...

Speed Woodworking #1: Simple Toy Box with Wheels

01-11-2012 03:53 PM by Peter Alkema | 2 comments »

I have recently been taking video of my projects as I complete them. With twins I usually make two of everything so the first one gives me practice and I can do a complete run through the second time, with the camera rolling. I’ll add some of these as I finish them – most are speeded up around 5x normal, but it gives a quick overview of completing the project in a couple of minutes. Here is the link, any comments welcome….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PFtbonMXmE&feat...

Here is a toy garage I am working on for my youngest son Ryan. He is really into Hot wheels. I got the plans for this garage from a friend in Australia. He has been building these for several years. I had something similar to this when I was a kid except mine was plastic. This project was alot of fun and very easy to make. The boys as you can see wanted to start playing with it before I finished it. ...
