« Part 12: Lilly Cross Day 1.1 Part 13 of Intarsia series Part 14: Lilly Cross Day 3 »

I recently received a couple more orders that put the Intarsia Lilly Cross on the back burner, paying customers always come first, but I finished what I needed to get done on those orders and had some time to spare so I worked on the Lilly Cross. I started working on the wrap around vine, I knew this was going to be a real challenge, so I am extremely happy with what I was able to get done today. Below are the steps I took to get the vine to “Wrap Around” the back side of the cross. I have never attempted making a 3D intarsia sculpture before so this is a learning experience for me as I proceed through this process. I’m sure I will have unexpected challenges to overcome. The pictures and captions below will give a more detailed explanation of the processes I had to come up with.

I have had to come up with creative ways to drill and cut the piece on the scroll saw in order to accomplish the task without breaking it. Below are some of the steps I used to accomplish this.

This is the vine cut out and placed on top of the pattern for layout.

Drilling the entry hole for the saw blade.

Cutting on the scroll saw.

What the cut out piece looks like from the front.

And what it looks like from the back.

I am pleased with this so far and hope all else goes as well!
