Work in Progress – wood segmentation

I found a design by Chrestensen Burghout Designs that works well with both segmentation and intarsia styles of woodworking. I’m starting with Segmentation, and will post pictures and explain my progress over the next few days.

I had to enlarge the original pattern and print out 2 copies – one to cut from and another to use to keep track of the pieces. I had a piece of pine in my stash of wood that was the right width. It was warped though, so I had to sand it flat.

After hundreds of passes on my sander, it is flat, and about ½” thick – just the right thickness for the project.

I glue the pattern copy onto the wood using a glue stick. Then cut along each line, separating each segment of wood.

More tomorrow.....
