A New Take on an Old Design - Horses

03-06-2013 02:55 PM by Chris Mobley | 3 comments »

A few weeks back, I did a horse project for a customer. She sent over a picture of a painting hanging on her wall and wanted a piece done of this painting. I absolutely loved the picture that she sent over and was extremely excited to start this project. There is a few ways that I could have done this project for my customer 1) Making the pieces follow the musculature of the horse’s body or 2) Having the pieces follow the shading in the picture. I decided to do this piece with option two in h...

Epona Celtic Horse Knotwork - Intarsia Woodworking

03-05-2013 03:01 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

Epona Celtic Horse Knotwork – Intarsia WoodworkingEpona was a goddess of great strength to the ancient Celts. She is the protector of horses and symbolized understanding, vitality, and Independence. I chose to do this Epona Celtic Horse Knotwork piece because of the beauty in the design and in the meaning. As I talked about in prior knotwork articles, I have come across several knotwork projects that I am exploring. I found a similar design to this while at a festival and I fell in love how ...

Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork - Intarsia Woodworking

03-04-2013 03:29 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork – Intarsia Woodworking There is no beginning and there is no end. The roots and the branches of the Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork intertwine and become one. This Celtic knotwork design symbolizes timelessness of nature and creates balance and harmony. The lines in this project never end. I have not given Celtic knotwork much thought in the past when it comes to creating Intarsia pieces until I was asked to do the Celtic Love knotwork project a while ba...

To Paint or Not to Paint? - Intarsia Woodworking

03-01-2013 02:41 PM by Chris Mobley | 8 comments »

To paint or not to paint? This is the question. I have recently come across several debates on the topic of painting or staining intarsia work to achieve the different colors in a piece. I have even asked a group of my peers how they felt about the topic and I have gained some great knowledge. There is absolutely something to be said about using natural wood and natural wood grains to create a piece. In fact, in most cases this is my favorite way of doing my woodworking projects. In the...

Chevy Truck - Intarsia Woodworking

02-28-2013 01:11 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

Chevy Truck – Intarsia WoodworkingThe difference between men and boys is the prize of their toys ~ Doris Rowland I have had the pleasure of doing another truck project. This time it is of a Chevrolet Silverado. A while back, I did an intarsia project of my son’s Ford Boss truck (reference Boss post). One of his friends that he grew up playing football with saw the finished project and wanted one done of his truck. He sent me over a photograph of his truck to use as a template and to make a p...

Dopeys are Complete!

02-27-2013 02:27 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

Dopey – Intarsia Woodworking I just finished up a fun project that I did for a friend. My friend did a neat thing last month; she posted on Facebook a “Pay it Forward” type campaign for the first five people that commented on her post would receive a gift from her within this year. The catch was the people receiving the gift from her had to also post the same thing on their page and pay it forward to five of their friends. As you can imagine, this caught on and spread like wildfire. One of t...

Horses – Intarsia WoodworkingOne of my recent Intarsia projects is from a painting of horses. The client sent me a photograph of a painting hanging on their wall and requested an Intarsia piece from this photograph. I was very excited to start this one because I loved the picture they sent over. I started this project by cropping and enhancing this photograph on the computer. There is a few ways that I could have done this project. 1) Making the pieces follow the musculature of the horse’s...

Western Cross - Intarsia Woodworking

02-22-2013 01:27 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

The makings of this western cross happened by complete accident, but what a great gift it made for my wife. My daughter got a new computer aided design program. She was playing with it to learn all of the new things she could do and as she was playing she drew the design for this cross. I came to see her in her office and she was showing me her new program and some of the neat things that it could do when I noticed her drawing. I immediately thought of how great this would be to do in ...
