Beginning Intarsia? What wood should you use?

I was asked by a viewer if I would do a video talking about the best wood to use for intarsia. That question could be answered a million different ways because I am sure there are a million different opinions on what wood types are best. So, in this video, I talk about different kinds of wood that I have personally used, my experiences with them, and my likes and dislikes about them.

I do summarize what wood I believe is best to start with when doing intarsia at 19.32. And those are cedar, poplar, and pine.

After I published this video I was given this Janka scale by a viewer, check it out for wood hardness measurements:

Routered Picture of Ron and Tik

I have this great picture of my step dad and his puppy dog and I have wanted to make something with it for quite awhile. I asked Charles Dearing a few years ago to make a pattern out of it and I am finally now trying to router it. I think it looks pretty cool. I also put a verse on the back that I thought fit very well. It is Proverbs 17:17 which says, “A friend loves at all times…”

 

 

Halloween Wood Jack o’ Lantern

I wanted to make a pumpkin out of a log of juniper wood that I had. I hoped to “carve” a jack o’ lantern face in it and put a light inside. Well, that didn’t work out, but I did end up using my wood burner to burn a face onto the pumpkin. Even though it’s not really a lantern, it’s still a jack o’ lantern type of a thing. I think it looks cool and makes a great Halloween decoration! I also have the best Halloween costume this year, I think you’re gonna love it!

Special thanks to Steve Carmichael for letting me dress up like him (and for being silly with me)!!! Check out his channel: The Carmichael Workshop.com

 

 

 

Staining Mom’s Table

My mom asked me to re-stain this table for her. While I was working on it I remembered spilling fingernail polish remover on a dining room table we had when I was a kid. That spot was there for a long time reminding me never to let that stuff touch the table again. This isn’t the old dining room table with the spot, but it is still a table that I can refinish for my mom. 🙂

 

 

Routered Pet Portraits

I started this project using some pictures of Wally and Gibbs that I had cartoonized using an app on my phone. I figured it would be easier to router their pictures if they were drawings. I routered them and then added some other things to make a sign along with their portraits.

If anyone would like to commission me to make a portrait of your pet please send me an email and we can chat about it.

Job 12:10 (NCV) The life of every creature and the breath of all people are in God’s hand.

Ruler for Nev, to watch her grow.

The newest grandchild is now standing, so that means it is time to start measuring!

I decided to try routering (instead of wood burning) her height ruler and I liked doing that very much! I put a bunch of characters on her ruler including, Winnie the Pooh and his friends, Bugs Bunny and his friends, and a few buffalos and penguins.

I also added Psalm 139:16 to the back. It says, “All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old.” That is a pretty cool thought as you’re growing up and living life!

It was fun to measure her, she is about 2 feet 6 inches at 10 months old!!!

Psalm 139:16 (NCV) All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old.

Concrete Pad for the shop and Compass Mosaic!

I made this compass in February 2017. Here is link to that video: Compass Mosaic 

I wanted to put the compass in some concrete in the yard of the house in Newport but there wasn’t a place for it to go. So now since the Prineville shop needs a concrete pad outside the door we decided it would be a great place for the compass! So in this video we get the concrete pad in place and give the compass a home.

I have never seated a mosaic in concrete before so I am not sure if this was the best way to do it, but it worked!

Sisters, Oregon Sign

There is a little town near us called Sisters and it is known for its three mountains. I wanted to make a sign with those three mountains and so I grabbed my router and made one!

Psalm 90:2 (NCV)

Before the mountains were born and before you created the earth and the world, you are God. You have always been, and you will always be.
