I caught Bill off guard as he settled in to check out the pieces-ha! He has been cutting the pieces out for a few days in the shed but it was much too cold for him to stay out there any length of time.
The pattern is a purchased one. Copies are made so that you can attach it to the wood with spray adhesive. Then when sawing the pieces out, you cut paper and all. Now he is coming inside to remove all the paper and then will be sanding each piece before assembling the hawk.
Note the wing on the upper corner of the board on his lap. This will be added to the figure of the hawk making it 3-dimensional.
|In this picture, the wing is placed on top to show you the depth |
of the figure.
I will take pictures as the figure progresses. I cannot wait to see the result!
*Intarsia comes from the Italian word for Mosaic. The patterns for Intarsia woodworking are put together much like mosaics. It is very time consuming and requires a great deal of skill.
