I’m getting ready for a show at the Five Lakes Mall in Fairmont, MN. on Saturday. I did this Hummingbird pattern by Troy Lichthardt yesterday. It’s simple but I like it and it is a good seller at shows. I used Mahogany for the frame along with Yellowheart, Poplar, Red Cedar, Padauk, Canarywood, Walnut, and Hard Maple.

Very pretty…are you saying you made this in one day? I have made a few pieces of intarsia, but they sure took me longer than one day to make. Thanks for sharing

Yup, I did this in one day, actually about three hours. I have been using a scroll saw for over 50 years, I can saw this stuff with my eyes closed…..almost. I use the Seyco Flex Drum Sander for most of the shaping. I used a router with a 1/4 inch round over for the for the frame.

Well, I have been scrolling for about 45 years, and there is no way I could cut sand and glue up in one day. Cutting is easy I know, but the forming of the pieces are what takes me so much time. After looking over the items you have posted here, I would say you are a true artist when it comes to intarsia

Hawaiilad, I have some secrets I’ve developed for shaping and finish sanding that cuts the time required by 75%. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to make some money from my tricks. The tricks don’t sacrifice quality in fact improves the quality.

I sure would be interested in hearing what your secrets are to save time sanding and shaping the pieces for intarsia.
