    "Eagle's Realm" Intarsia---DONE

    Hi Everyone
    Well , after about 40 hours of cutting and fitting and redesigning , I finally got the “Eagle’s Realm” intarsia project complete. Took about 3 hours today to glue in all 175 pieces and apply 2 coats of spray on satin poly.The biggest hurdle was getting the depth in the background but I got it, Whew that was tough!!! Woods used—Walnut, Holly, Spalted Beech, Spalted Sycamore, Yellowheart, Ebony, Fishtail Oak, Poplar, Lignum Vitae, Purpleheart, Afromosia, Vera wood, Peruvian Walnut, Tulipwood, Maple, Bloodwood, Pink Ivory. Fun project.

    Yes, beautiful work. I have got to give intarsia a try sometime soon. Nothing this intricate that's for sure.

    Exquisite!

    Too detailed for this beginning scroller. My wife and I took a beginning scroll saw class at the Spokane WoodCraft Store last Saturday. I plan on ordering a gross of blades and letting the wife fire up her new Excalbur scroll saw.

    I cannot imagine the guts it took to do that project. Heck I cannot even imagine the guts it took to start the project. I hope that you enjoyed every cotton pickin' second of it---it looks like you did.

    Enjoy,
