Project Information

After a few months (i'd guess about 80 hours or so), my new lion is completed. I am very excited about it and proud of it-and this one I'm keeping! All too often I make and give away…This one is for me. It contains roughly 70 pieces with no stains being used. Woods used are ash, walnut, paduak, brazilian cherry, cherry, yellowheart, peruvian walnut, redwood, red oak, birch and bolivian rosewood. All comments are welcome-even critique's…how else am I going to get better?

Outstanding! I would love to be able to do intarsa but just haven't had the time or the courage to tackle it. Love the lion pattern. Where did you get it? I am making a box and would love to do the lion on the top in marquetry.

Very very nice - are you leaving this as a puzzle or are you installing this into something?

wizard-i actually got the picture from my mother, as a 1" x 1" square from one of her quilting magazines. i simply copied and enlarged it. since it was so small, i had to put my own lines of distinction in to finish it off.

norm-i like relooking at it to see what you saw

dbray-it's all glued together, so it's not so much a puzzle. as to installing it into something, i don't know. i was going to leave it as is, unless i get other ideas?!?

thanks all!

Hey Smoke: Many thanks for your encouraging comments about my Intarsia. I tapped into your work and holy smoke…s!! Fantastic! You make very good use of all the many wood choices. I don't blame you for keeping this one! One of these days I'd like to make something for myself as well … as it is, by the time I've finished a project, I've fallen so in love with it … I hate to pass it over to my clients! Don't you feel that so much of ourselves goes into our art?! Carry on … no need for improvement, just keep on enjoying your talents!
