  1. Projects New benches for sauna

    Had two options: either throroughly clean and oil the old sauna furniture (maybe two hours hard work), or make new ones (in hindsight this took the whole of my four day weekend). It was clearly time to invest in new ones, so spending time cleaning the old ones seemed as awaste of time. I took...
  2. Underwater World

    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done. This one took AWHILE to finish because it was 341 pieces and a lot of them where very small. I spent a lot of time down on my hands and knees looking for a piece...
  3. Intarsia Eagle

    My first attempt at an intarsia project was this 90 piece intarsia eagle with a 24 inch wing-span. Made out of walnut and aspen, finished with water-based varnish and a little paint (yellow beak and feet). Pattern was found in one of Better Homes and Garden's WOOD magazine. Hope to do another...
  4. Find a Home for an Intarsia Carousel Horse Wall Hanging

    I really had some fun making this piece and it was a real challenge. I saw a picture on the internet and made a pattern based on that with Inkskape. It ended up having 190 different pieces with 13 different kinds of woods. The pole was a real challenge to make out of a block of yellow heart...
  5. Rustic Aspen Bench

    Just had to share this natural shape. Aspen and weathered wood…probably Doug fir slab. No bottom cross piece…a great place for boots. Bruce
  6. Church - Intarsia

    This intarsia piece is the white country church with steeple. The church is 19½" x 16" and has 70 pieces. Wood is Western Red Cedar and aspen and is finished with Old Masters Clear Finish gel varnish. I used a wood burner on the steeple and the horizontal lines on the church building. I made a...
  7. Intarsia Dragon (SPYRO)

    I asked my daughter to search the web for what she wanted me to make her and she picked out this pattern. It was purchased off eBay from kbennett702. It intimidated me, but once I got started… it wasn't so bad. Had to redraw some of it and improvise some pieces. She asked that I not use the...
  8. Cabin Intarsia

    Had fun with this one. After my grandmother retired from teaching she opened an art studio in an Appalachia Ohio log cabin that had been built in the1930's. I have many childhood memories of playing in and around this cabin. Working from a photo, I drew the pattern and then cut and shaped the...
  9. Flat Screen TV (wall mounted) Entertainement Center

    This entertainemnt center was designed for a wall mounted 30in Flat screen TV that allowed for the TV to be enclosed in a cabinet. The TV and top cabinet had to fit in the space between the two windows. It is made out of Aspen which is a little soft for furniture. Since it was to be painted...
  10. Intarsia Bearded Dragon Wall Hanging

    This one took awhile to finish and has 237 different pieces. I tried to take some pictures to show the depth of this piece because I used a lot of shims and used wood from 2 inches down to 1/2. The face looks blue, but it is really wenge and it is the way the light hit it for the picture. No...
  11. WOW! THIS IS OUR 200TH PROJECT! A Miniature Sled

    Our 200th project is kind of a simple little thing. Barb wanted a small sled for a holiday display, so I drew up a pattern, & went to my shop for a couple of hours. She was very pleased with the results. This is made of Aspen, Bigtooth Aspen a tree that blew down at our cabin. We burned...
  12. Intarsia Lion's New Mate (Lioness).

    This one was just finished. I made the original male lion last year for my parents (last two pictures). They loved it so much and were so happy to have it I wanted to do a female to match. I hope you can see some small improvements because when I made the first one I had only been doing...

  14. Grey Wolf Intarsia

    Good example of using risers to add depth to a project. Woods used: mahogany, walnut, alder and aspen. JGR pattern. My son has been a Sierra Club member and advocate of the grey wolf since he was 12. It was a labor of love to make this for his 16th birthday. Thanks for looking. Jim
  15. Intarsia Mule, I Still Don’t know why I Made This?

    First of all I really still don't know why I made this piece??? For my birthday my wife gave me a gift certificate to use, but on a few conditions. I could only use it for a piece that was not for sale, or for a gift, and only for my enjoyment to make. Her conditions came from the fact I told...
  16. White-Tail Deer Intarsia

    Just finished the White-Tail Buck Deer in Grass designed by JGR. It is 17" x 20 1/4" and has 43 pieces. The woods are Western Red Cedar and Aspen. This piece was requested by my sister-in-law to give to her husband who raises white tail deer. Note: The grass is made of some great WRC I ordered...
  17. Ebony stained Aspen Foot Locker

    I've been making hope chests/foot lockers for my nieces and nephews graduation gifts. I try to match design elements to each of their individual tastes and personality. Luke is a musician and typically wears black shirts and/or hats. Therefore, his footlocker was destined to take on a black...
  18. Candy Dispenser

    Once again, another project that the scouts put together. These were pre-cut in kit form with some drilling and cuttting needed to finish the project. The candy would sit above the dowel rod and when the dowel rod is spun, it would drop a candy down the "sliding boards" and out the hole in the...
  19. Intarsia Carousel Giraffe (I’m my own worst enemy)

    Explanation: I wanted to make a piece that was a little more difficult and I think I went overboard. 402 pieces and 140 hours later this is what I ended up with. Hope yall like it. This one is another in a series of carousel animals that I'm trying to find a good place to donate them to. I...
