Gene more pictures of your learning steps would be interesting...

Uhhh...which ones? Laser work, glass engraving/etching, Dremel carving? I'm learning one at a time. Still got a long road ahead with the laser. Baby steps.

I mowed early this week so my shop times will lessen as I start watching the weeds grow... fixin to go reinstall my drain plugs for the lake water...….. The first humming bird showed up Wed and we had put out the feeders about three days before that...

  I sure been learning about some strange happenings at the other bird feeders...the see through hanging clear plastic suspended feeders...

Anything happening in the shop.. Then guys can says that looks too hard , I'll just keep watching soap on tv

Right now, I'm just making a couple strange looking frames for the two laser burned family tree plaques. I'll try to get some pics of the process. Believe me, nothing I do is too hard. Learnin' is hard. Doin' it ain't.

That eye up close kind of creeps me out...sorta' the "stink eye" look. I had a White Rock rooster that used to give you that look...when he did, better look out, 'cause he was coming at you with his spurs.:BugEyeSmiley:

 

Can't wait to see this one in "full bloom."

Won't be any mowing here for a while...grass is still brownish yellow...that and you'd need helium in the tires or tracks to keep from sinking into the ground.

At least five weeks away from hummingbird arrival here...feed them good Patch, they're going to need the extra bulk to stay warm once they arrive.

Just keeping the feeders cleaned out & dry is about an every other day job. They don't like the red-tailed hawk either that's been hanging around lately. At least the dog has been getting a workout chasing the hawk when he flies over. Her view is restricted airspace...she intends to enforce it.

Is Jess's work Intarsia? School me folks.

As I understand it Jess's work is segmentation, i.e. all pieces cut from one large piece and then the pieces sanded or carved, then stained, dyed or painted as desired.

Inartsia is cutting the individual pieces from separate small(er) sections of wood, which are selected for color and grain. very little to no staining for color is done (just to protect the wood)

John, to see some intarsia, do a You Tube search for Judy Gale Roberts. 

Thanks Gene, I know what Intarsia is, just wasn't sure if Jess's work fell into that category or not.:)

We don't have to look too far to see some fantastic Intarsia than in our own community!
