Intarsia raccoonIf you visit or are a member of the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association chances are high you know about Intarsia.  judygalerobertsWith the largest contingent of scroll saw aficionados in Georgia there are always plenty of examples of great intarsia work on display.  The recent, March 6, 2010, class by Judy Gale Roberts offered members and guests a rare view of arguably the finest intarsia work found anywhere.  Judy Gale Roberts lives and works in Seymour, TN which is between Knoxville and Sevierville.  In her first ever class in front of a woodworking group Judy shared her techniques, perspectives and passion for intarsia.

During the GWA Saturday morning class Judy introduced herself and educated approximately 65 attendees on the history and intricacies of intarsia. In a five hour extended class she demonstrated specific techniques for making her Raccoon in a Tree piece from pattern preparation through finishing.  As with many masters, Judy makes intarsia look easy and simple.  intarsia-patternIt is no wonder that she fills regular classes in her shop in Seymour and that she has such a huge following.  She is an excellent presenter and master woodworker.  The GWA Scroll Saw SIG has twice visited her shop and each time have returned with boundless stories of her work and exploding interest in all things intarsia.  No class is long enough to present or absorb the magnitude and grandeur of Judy Gale Roberts' lifetime of work.
