Fat Car As I mentioned in my last article (see Fat Truck, Feb/Mar 03), I love to doodle.Sometimes I spend a bit more time on a drawing and it develops into an intarsia pattern.This is one of those doodles.
I really like the soft, round look of the curves.The shape flows from one soft intersection to another.It is a basic intarsia project.I used Western Red Cedar for the whole thing.Start with a base material ¾' thick.
The door handle is cut, shaped and glued onto the surface of the door with a ¼' dowel.Choose your woodChoose the various colors and shades of wood you want to use (or as the pattern suggests).This is a very creative step, so pay close attention to grain and color to achieve an attractive project.
Transfer the patternTransfer the pattern to the wood with whichever technique you prefer: carbon paper, template, or photocopy, and glue onto the wood.Cut out the piecesCut out the pieces very carefully.
This is the most important step as far as the fitting is concerned.If you cut carefully, right on the line, the pieces should fit fairly well off the saw.I like to use a scroll saw...
