Topic tags/keywords: oak mahogany walnut maple scroll saw drill press shaping sanding arts and crafts

This intarsia is one of two that I made this time. I stack cut walnut ,maple, and oak, each 1/2” thick. Interchanged the pieces to give contrasting colors . This way I made one cut that produced two finished images. The table I made seperately of Mahogany. About 80 pieces in each. I glued a backing of 1/8” Masonite and made two strap hangers from an old band saw blade. Acrylic spray finish. Fun project to cut , not so much fun sanding …...

Maurv:..... I just did an image search on the Internet and found one I liked. I edited and sized it in a program called “Paint” . I used this to make my own pattern. I have decided that the next time I make this I will have less hands in it. They are tough to do and I do not think removing some of them will be a problem with the look of the overall project. Ninty-one days later and I still have one of them to sell.
