Intarsia Duck

This Intarsia Duck was a joint venture (My sweet lady, and myself worked together on this one), and it was the first go at the intarsia craft for both of us. Here are pictures of it before and after finishing (It is still wet in the picture, it is actually a satin finish). We made this last year in May for a birthday gift for her father. It is made of Soft Maple, Ambrosia Maple, Black Walnut, Red Oak, Yellow Heart, Mahogany, and Ebony.

We found the pattern on page 30 in a book called, “Intarsia Woodworking Projects” by Kathy Wise.

Sgt. that is a very well done project. I have tried my hand at Intarsia – and to say the least – to get a good looking project – takes many hours of labor. The projects may be small – but some of the larger projects take less time. You and your lady – did well. Cong.

Very beautiful SgtSnafu, I think that this is a lot off work.
On the second photo you see how the wood is coming to live.

My compliments.

Schummie.

My compliments Sarge & Wife, I have been dabbling in intarsia for a short while and am loving it. I hope you all are enjoying as much as I. Job well done.

Great job to you both.

Keep it up.

Thank you all for the compliments, I have two more intarsia pieces to bring you up to date. I will post them soon.

Scrappy – I agree – Any time I get to work along side my sweet lady, is a great enjoyment. I was hoping that getting her into scroll sawing would be a good outlet for her creativity, and I encourage it. She is currently working on an intarsia pelican (so far all by herself), and is stressing slightly because she wants to have it done by Fathers Day…
