It’s All About Donating! #6: Rustic Intarsia

08-13-2019 02:19 PM by justoneofme | 12 comments »

Warning! This blog is a long one … but it’s the last in this series. So I hope you enjoy a favourite beverage while reading or just looking at these photos :) Remember I said something about having an idea I hoped would work? Well … it did!! Never having dabbled in ‘rustic’ painting before now, my methods may seem somewhat unorthodox to those who know better. And truly … I did experience a few inner battles between simple rustic and intricate realism while tackling...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #4: My first workbench build- recycling offcuts for inlay

07-31-2019 12:00 PM by siggykc | 4 comments »

Gday-gday, I hope its warm and sunny for you all – a start contrast to the cold wet mornings in Melbourne as of recent! Due to the weather one evening after work, I was stuck at home with my small garage that is setup for some small metalworking jobs. Bored, I racked my brain for things to do. As you readers of this blog will know, the last thing I posted on was the leg vise, which is made predominantly out of quilted (big leaf?) maple.The bloke that sold me that quilted maple ...

It’s All About Donating! #5: Rustic Intarsia

07-29-2019 02:45 PM by justoneofme | 11 comments »

After a 3-week painting marathon to beautify our dwelling, then reclaiming my workshop again … I’m finally back to this Rustic Intarsia art piece. Even though it had been put on hold, constant thoughts of shaping the design parts kept momentum driving me forward in anticipation!Experience has taught me to prepare for a projectile or two! When it comes to rough sanding tiny pieces it’s definitely necessary to have a firm grip on things! But … when only the slightest brush agains...

It’s All About Donating! #4: Rustic Intarsia

07-01-2019 03:19 PM by justoneofme | 10 comments »

Life keeps interrupting me! But at least (within this write up ) I can show how far along things got before having to put my Intarsia project on hold. So now that the entire design is secured to its backboard, the time has come to enhance all those edges with ‘rustic’. You’ll notice at the bottom left (photo) how dark that particular edge is. I’m aiming for the same along the top and bottom. Both side edges already look great with scabby paint and old wood blending together. Normally I’m...

Heron intarsia #1: Heron (Day 1)

12-21-2018 06:34 PM by Woodenmadedesigns | 1 comment »

A little late to start a Xmas present but there were too many other projects getting in the way. This may end up being a Valentines present by the time I’m finished but I’m sure my wife will understand. Credit to Judy Roberts for the plans. I just started this today and will hopefully post regularly as progress is made. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Quick, Cheap and Easy UV coverup for Noah's Ark

11-23-2015 12:46 PM by jfk4032 | 1 comment »

Thanks for the suggestions LJers last week for how to better protect my Noah’s Ark from UV light fading. I really didn’t want to cover up the piece with museum quality glass that had UV protection in it as I thought to best experience the piece, you not only have to look at it, but touch it as well. Also, the cost and time involved with that method didn’t work for me to have it ready this week. I went to Joann’s Fabrics with the intention of just getting a fabric ...

Originals #1: Cupcake Box

11-10-2015 12:36 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, I’m having a bit of woodworking ADD lately while trying to work on holiday gifts. I have a million things to do so of course I’m procrastinating. I decided to attempt making my own pattern and went with a simple cupcake box. I’ve seen the ones that are round and look like actual cupcakes, but I wanted mine to be a flat box with a sort of intarsia top. I drew up the pattern in Inkscape and started cutting. The box is being glued at the moment so I’ll cut it tomorrow...

Vector patterns and modifying them for double bevel cutting

04-01-2014 10:17 PM by jfk4032 | 2 comments »

It was requested on another forum for me to explain how I capture my intarsia patterns digitally, create vector artwork, then modify that artwork for accurate double bevel cutting…so here it is for my LJ friends: I’ll try to explain the techniques I’ve developed for digitizing my patterns and using that pattern to expand the artwork for accurate double bevel cutting. Keep in mind, I just started intarsia less than 2 years ago, only have 7 projects under my belt and only tried double ...

Once you have the basics down, than you can take on just about any Intarsia pattern there is. Click on the picture below to go to the 7 part series and also get a free p...
