Lazy Kanga Intarsia Pattern

A fellow Aussie is making one of these life size, 5ft long, and leaning it against the wall of his verandah so he will always have company when he is enjoying his sundowner after a hard days work.

This Dechchair Kangaroo project, included in the book Intarsia Down Under, introduces the idea of using the third dimension in intarsia.

This is as easy as glueing the deckchair frame on top of the kangaroo but it adds that extra bit of interest to the design.

This is taken to much greater limits in the Bikie project at the end of the book. He has 4 separate layers that give a great 3D effect.

This pattern is included in my book 'Intarsia Down Under' and not only includes a full size plan but 2 pages of detailed instructions along with 17 full colour step by step photos. Anyone will be able to make this amusing intarsia.

Intarsia patterns

Intarsia Woodworking Patterns are a great way to turn your scrap timber into exclusive artwork that will amaze your friends.

A cheap scroll saw or band saw will get you going.

You'll need some sand paper. Attached to something that rotates.

Like everything, a really complicated intarsia is, well, complicated, and needs lots of work.

Simple patterns are a lot, what's the word I'm looking for, simpler.
