My first stab at doing intarsia….got my inspiration after seeing a project done by another individual on this website…...his name escapes me now. What a learning curve too, first time ever to work with a scroll saw (the Dewalt DW788) and a variety of blade types and wood types, too much fun!
Working on two more copies, going to call ‘em Toy Box 2.0. Going to add in the sun, probably top right corner of the lid (using yellow heart or amarillo) and clouds on the top left, then fashion up the oh so important but missing Noah to complete the box. Go to Cherrytreetoys.com and search for plans. This took maybe 100-150 hours in dribs and drabs over the course of last summer. Presented to my niece and her hubby as a present for their 8 month old at thanksgiving.
Hope you like sanding! You’re going to do A LOT of it! So many different types of wood that must be fit together…... Probably used 80% of the tools i have to make this, but worth it. Plus, what I didn’ have it seemed like the good Lord made available for me at the right time at the right price!
-- I don't know what this is going to be like, but there's only one way to find out..........
