« Part 15: Lilly Cross Day 4 Part 16 of Intarsia series Part 17: How to make Intarsia, Video series »

I finally was able to spend some real time on the Lilly Cross, now it is almost complete. I don’t think I need to go into big explanations here other than to say the Lilly is complete, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. If you have any questions, please ask I will be happy to answer any of them. I will probably be finished with it tomorrow and will post the final pictures than.

Great job Bob, it turned out beautiful. Your first picture really shows how nice you did on shaping the Lilly. I like the whole thing, including the base.

Thanks to both of you, but it’s still not quite done yet. I still have to finish the base and put a finish on it. It will look much better then, these pictures didn’t come out very well. I will take better ones tomorrow and list it under projects.

Thanks Big K’

The basis patterns is from Kathy Wise’s book “Intarsia Woodworking for Beginners”. The base was simply hand drawn arbitrary shapes cut on the scroll saw, the vine was a bit more complicated and took several attempts. The vine was also hand drawn and cut out of 1 1/2” thick wood.
