I just finished this, my first intarsia project, about an hour ago. Showed it to my 3-year-old daughter and she said, “That’s beautiful, Daddy. Can I have it?” Guess the first one becomes a toy. LOL

Great work. That looks like a good design to start with. Did you design it yourself or are you following a plan? I’ve never tried intarsia, but looks like fun.

It’s from a free pattern I found online. Didn’t want to pay for a pattern just to find out I didn’t even like doing the work. I am already seeing that designing shouldn’t be really hard, either, but a bit more practice with other people’s patterns first.

Great job, the shaping is very impressive. I love to see more people on lj’s getting into intarsia!

Nice work, Dave! After the Holiday Season craft shows, I am going to try intarsia.

Thank you. I was looking for a new challenge. (Get bored easily.) This one not only looks good, but it’s fun and a definite challenge to get all the pieces to fit smoothly. I think my next major investment needs to have something to do with dust collection and/or lung protection, though. There’s a lot of sanding dust in this.
