First go at intarsia

I guess Johnnie got the juices flowing so I decided to give this intarsia deal a try.

The outcome is supposed to be a symbol for a Navy or USMC aviation ordnanceman. The center is referred to as a flaming pisspot with wings. I only had a little time to play with so far but starting to take shape.

Walnut for the bomb
Blood wood and mahogany for the flames
Ash for the wings

More to follow but thought I would post since I have't done so I a while.

First time's a charm. Looks like you've been doing this for quite some time. Nice, can't wait for more.

Wow, looking good.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

My #2 Daughter is in the Air Force in what they call ammo and they have the same insignia. Looks to me like you got it right!

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

AO Wings Update

Here's a update on my intarsia effort. Now I just need to figure out what I am going to do with it. I was thinking of making a small chest and put mount this on the top or front. That or incorporate it in with a challenge coin display. I'll call this one D-U-N for now. Thanks for looking.

That came out great. The chest sounds like a good idea.

I'd like to try that some day, when and if I get a scroll saw. But I could probably do it on a bandsaw with an 1/8" blade.

Great job! That will look great on the front or top of a chest for sure. Very well done.

Thanks Ray, I will say the hardest part was getting started. You should give it a try. For the center piece, I just used a 4/4 piece, mounted to the lathe and turned enough to round off the face. This is the site that inspired me.....this guy does some awesome work.

Wow that is a cool site. Looks like he did an AE insignia too. I like how yall do the wings. Mine were ok, but these are truer to the real thing. Love his shadowboxes, especially the four-flag flag boxes.
