I purchased a band saw last year for re-sawing and wanted to make something a little different.

Welcome to LumberJocks. The sets are very nice. Did you tape the woods together and just cut out the parts?

I used tape for the first one that I did, but it stuck so well that when I tried to separate them, they busted. Then I read that gluing them together with a piece of paper in between worked better. As long as you only use a tiny amount of glue all over, this works really well. once the pieces are cut, all it takes to get them apart is a butter knife slipped between the pieces to separate them.

They are certainly “a little different” – and a whole lot cool!!!

Very nice work – just don’t show them side by side or they will know the secret! ;-)

Actually if I read ahead first I would of saw you already spilled the beans on how to do it, lol. I was thinking you went about it that way but I didn’t realize the paper trick. I’ll have to try that. Thanks for sharing!

Very good project, as well as execution of it. I’ve always considered trying some intarsia on the bandsaw, but I was a little leery. Might be getting a scroll saw soon, but if that doesn’t happen I will be doing some of this on the BS for sure.
