||Have you seen the beautiful artwork hanging in the Woodcraft store – the ones where different woods are cut into forms and put together like a puzzle to make a picture? That’s intarsia! It’s related, in part, to marquetry and inlay and the artwork is centuries old. Today we use modern equipment and supplies to simplify the process while still creating a beautiful picture. This class will provide an overview of safe operating procedures as well as give tips on wood selection, use of patterns, techniques of sawing the wood pieces, checking the fit, sanding, shaping, and gluing. You will learn the use of the scroll saw, band saw, various sanding options, and types of glue and finishes to complete a project that you can hang in your home. Some scroll saw experience is beneficial. Due to the gluing and drying requirements, you will have an extended lunch break (about 1 hr). You will be working on a project that you can take home, apply some finish, and hand on your wall.
