I made this pattern a couple of years ago, yet it still remains one of my favorites. It is a segmentation plaque made on the scroll saw. Segmentation is a lot of fun to do. Instead of using many species of wood (like when you are making an Intarsia plaque like Kory K does) in segmentation the overlay pieces are cut from a single piece of wood, much like a puzzle. You section the pieces and then shape them accordingly. This is much easier to do than Intarsia because the pieces naturally fit together well.
I then colored the pieces using acrylic paint and staining medium and glued them onto the backboard.
The plaque measures approximately 14” x 8” and is made of maple, as are the overlay pieces. The pattern for this piece is available on my site for those of you who would like to give it a try. I hope you like it! :)
