This was a kind of gag gift I gave to my son Troy and his wife D.I.L. I will have to look up who the designer is but he designs things like this a lot and they are fun to make. His patterns can be found in Creative Wood works and Crafts. He calls this one a “Buck Saw” I Love it!
and when I was down there this Christmas I took this picture, so , so far so good as to holding up. It never ceases to amaze me at the innards of a tree.When I look at a pomegranate tree or consume it’s fruit now I think about it all so differently. I can’t wait to share with you, who come here to my page, the wood from the apricot tree that we also pruned! It almost looks like the wood paduak It’s just plain awesome!!!
The handle is green poplar.

By the way , believe it or not the “bucks” are actually made from a pomegranate tree that’s located in so. Ca. at my father’s house. Just like the lemon tree in my cockatoo this tree also needed pruning and hubby was the lucky one asked to do it and we were astonished at how BEAUTIFUL the wood was/is.There are all sorts of different shades of yellows starting with real light, almost white all the way to nice shades of light browns. I had no idea about how to dry this and just took a chance. I made this for my son 2 Christmas’s ago

A real “saw-buck.” I always thought they were a $20.00

Allison,

Very nice work, Intarsia is an art that I hope to one day be good at but for now I would rather admire your work, I have enough ideas as it is, especially, now that I am an LJ. lol
