So I completed my third intarsia work. This time a snowman pattern I picked up from Wood Magazine. Overall I am happy with the way it turned out, although I do have several ideas already for how to improve on the next one I do. The mouth called to be scrollsawn, however, as my saw takes pinned blades, I wasn’t keen on large holes on the corners of the mouth. So I cut a groove with the Dremel. I still wanted something a little different, but the creative juices just weren’t flowing! One suggestion was wood burning, that may have proved interesting? On the next one, I intend to go for a smoother scarf, and add some detail to the mitts. Woods are mostly unknown… The darkest came from the scrap bin at the wood store, the medium is the unknown door frame wood I’ve used in several other projects, and the white is hard maple.
Thanks for looking!
