    Intarsia Question

    Wow. That would be a learning curve for this old man. I'll figure this out from what you said and put it in terms for a simple minded guy that I am. It what I usually do if I put my mind to it. It be sometime early next year before I tackle Intrasia. Got eye surgery in January for Cataract and hoping this let me see little better when using the scroll saw. Thanks Smnallpatch for your help.

    Intarsia Question

    Smallpatch I can't tell the difference sometimes in what wood is. Do know the difference from Cherry, Walnut and Red Oak. Sometimes White Oak get me confuse. If I understand correctly, you basically use one type of wood and then paint each pieces after sanding them to fit. Part of my problem would be painting them. I can just about stain anything and and it would looks good. But painting, well let just say it looks terrible. I agree that some exotic woods are expensive but depending on how big that board is, small piecies for intrasia probably would go a long way. Sanding the pieces would not be a problem for me. Do have bench mount drill press and sanding drums. Do you use air brush to paint them or just use plane ordinary paint brush? Wayne

    Intarsia Question

    i have done some Scroll sawing in the past but mostly fret works. Been interested in trying my hand on Intrasia for years. Have read up on some but sort of get little confused on the process. How do you cut out each pieces to fit if the pieces are a different shade or color? And how do most sand their pieces? Wayne

    Grandpadave52. Got another bookshelf to do. This one I'll try making it looks more Art and Craft style and it would be smaller than the one I just finish. But been waiting for the new on- off switch for my table saw for 2 weeks. I got the sides cut when the switch went out. Be my luck it be here later this week and I won't be able to do anything till I get back from another trip and it my last trip for this year I hope.

    Well don't know what happens to my post earlier this morning seems to have disappeared. No telling what I did wrong. Finally finished this project after 3 out of town trips and some other activities that kept me away. It a lot work to make this in 3 sections for my small shop. The side and back panel is Birch Plywood from the home center. I was not too impress with it but that what my wanted. The face frame and doors frame is Red Oak lumber with 1/4 inch Red Oak Plywood panel. The shelves is what the home centers called Select Pine or Clear and Better Pine. It the closes that I could come up with to match the plywood. And yes my wife beat me to it in filling the shelves up beforwe I got the picture taken.

    What's On Your Work Bench?

    Skiler I was out of town for few days. Well as for being beginner, I started about 26 years ago with jig saw, circular saw and old black and decker fixed base router to make a little old step stool my wife wanted. When done is was pretty ruff looking. Still have it and my wife will not let me toss it out the door. Guess that when I got bitten for woodworking. Basically I'm self taught. For years I watch The Yankee workshop. I subscribed to several woodwoking magazine and bought some books to learn. Some years I didn't do any woodworking due work and other things in life keeping me away. I know I maybe better than a beginner. But there is some more to learn and I know there more out there to try. Bending wood and veneering along woth learining to do intrasia. I'm good but I'm not that good is my motto. It help me to keepp trying to do better on the nerxt project not matter what it is.

    John The cabinet bottom I did it as dado and the back as rabbit cut. Basically the drawers were cut as rabbit and just glue and couple brad nail from my air gun. The glass door frame was nothing more than mortise and tenon. The bookshelf is actually not attached to the cabinet top. The bottom shelf is dado and did the top section in rabbit as well the back panel. The rest of the shelves are adjustable by shelf pins holes I drill. Contruction to me was pretty much straight forward. The wood and plywood is Red Oak. The stain I used is MinWax Provincial and the clear is Minwax Clear Semi-Gloss Polyurethane. Drawers slide arwe full extension slides.

    Handy Dan. Sheet rocking it and hiding it is definitely a bad idea from the boss. She had put her foot down on what she wants.

    Thanks. From the looks of it, That the way some carpenter built it back in the mid 70's. The more I keep looking at it, I most likely build it three sections. Got my material list worked up. Time to go get the plywood and at least get it cut to width.

    Next Project

    This one may present more of a assembly issues than the actual cutting. It basically nothing more as another bookshelf, but it is 92 inches tall, 52 inches wide and 12 inches deep. From front of my table saw and my workbench which serves as both the out feed table and assembly table is 9 ft. 6 inches long. But only 40 inches wide. I would prefer to assemble it in one piece. But think I'm going to have to assemble it in three sections. Anyone have a better idea on this?

    Well I finally got around to getting this project done after several other things that delayed me in getting it finished. What you think? I still considered myself as a beginner. Several for my friends think otherwise. But they are not woodworkers.

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
