That is some cool jewelry terrilynne.

I haven’t done a whole lot of intarsia. Everytime I see nice examples though, like bhack’s on this thread, it makes me want to get my butt in gear.

I love combining my scrolling skills with other types of wood work. I like that because it shows what value scrolling can have in accenting an already nice project. Well, anyway, I was recently given plans for a toy chest with a huge Noah’s Ark themed intarsia front. I’m thinking about blowing the dust off my old 24” Craftsman and working on that this spring.
One thing that has always kept me from doing much intarsia was lack of access to a variety of woods. Between the help of fellow Lumberjocks though, and now having the access to resaw it all without wasting most of it on the planer, I now have access to about eight different woods. So I guess I am out of excuses.

Terrilynne, what is your analysis of the Hitachi scroll saw? And what model was it? The Lowes that is about thirty miles from me often puts their Hitachi scroll saw on sales pretty reasonable, as scroll saws go. I’ve been reluctant to try it though because I haven’t heard much on that saw.
