Sheepdog and Hare
« on: May 21, 2017, 01:35:31 PM »
Hi,
I have finished a couple of Intarsia's that have been hanging around for a few weeks now  :D first time actually making stuff in the workshop and didn't do too bad but 3 hrs was plenty for today but with a bit more adapting I should be back on with the big stuff (i have 4 already started but too fiddly at the moment)
I have done quite a few of the Hares and Sheepdogs so nice easy ones to work on, the dogs approx 20" x 11" x 1" and the Hare is 14" x 10" x 1" and both are made from an old pine table top so no exotics today.
Nowt exciting but its a start, My glue gun arrived yesterday so I glued the pieces onto a piece of corian held in the vice so i can sand/shape them with one hand  :lol: it worked ok so will experiment more as i can see it being a great help in the future especially with the fine work.......the big Barn Owl i am working on is 240+ pieces so far and the glue gun will be ideal for holding the individual feathers etc.

Any hope ya like em and glad to be butchering wood again........having a rest tomorrow lol

Cheers

Both are great.  Very nice work.  In our part of the country, your Sheepdog would be called a Border Collie.

Thanks everyone and glad you like them 8-) aye we call them Border Collies too.........its all farming here so plenty of Collies about.....but recently one or two of the farmers have started to use small Drones up in the mountains to check on their sheep..they just sit in their pickups with a monitor they won't replace the dogs though.

Holy COW! Don't count on it they will be herding the sheep with drones in the future.  Would have never thought of that use of drones...  They are going to retire us all, man and beast!   :-X
