Customer Testimonials - Intarsia Patterns
NOV 2012

-Thought I’d drop you a mail from sunny South Africa because your Leopard’s Lair struck me as being unquestionably the best rendering of INTARSIA I’ve come across in the fifteen odd years I’ve been at the craft. I’ve managed to (hopefully successfully) make some your patterns from past Creative Woodworks & Craft editions and is an ardent fan of your designs. Keep on with your remarkable talent. Gunnie LR.  Cape Town, SA.

- "I worked with stained glass and wanted to find something similar to the the glass technique that I could do with wood. I found information about segmentation and intarsia. After several months of doing segmentation I decided to look for classes to learn intarsia. I was lucky enough to be able to take a class with Kathy. Kathy sees immediately what your talent level is after viewing a few of your art pieces. Her workshop and studio is impressive. Kathy's teaching method is wonderful. Her depth of knowledge and unique ability to communicate and demonstrate the technique can be understood by any level of student. I can't wait to start using the newly acquired knowledge on my next piece. I highly recommend that if you really want to lear the art of Intarsia you take a class with Kathy Wise. "Thanks again and hopefully I will be coming back for another class. Cindy

I am a big fan and I have already handcrafted several of your patterns. I must admit that the Jaguar was a challenge.  I am sure that you get these kind of emails often but I just wanted to express my appreciation for the folks who actually create the patterns.  Thanks and continue to create amazing patterns for us to build.  A. Dugas  , Montreal, Quebec.

-I recently attended on of Kathy's workshops.  It was a wonderful learning experience.  The biggest thing for me will be remembering everything that I learned.  With her diligent guidance, I was able to produce my best piece to date.  There were so many little tricks and nuances that she has learned through the years; that she willingly shared with us.
       Kathy is a very unique person, she is an artist and a teacher.  That combination is a rarity.   Her artwork is amazing.  I had the good fortune of viewing two of her murals first hand.  As awesome as they look on her website, it does not do them justice.  I don't think anyone can bring wood back to life, but Kathy comes closer than anyone else. When you listen to her talk you gain an appreciation for her passion.
       With her teaching, again I am impressed.  Her largest virtue is her patience.  I'm about as slow as Christmas and not once did Kathy lose her patience with me.  There isn't one instance that stands out to me, but the entire class was about helping us become better at our craft.  In case you haven't noticed I highly recommend this class.  My only concern is that those people talk kinda funny up there. Charlie H. TN

-I would like to thank you for making such a beautiful "Intarsia Rose" picture frame.  Also, for sharing it with the world and making it available to the rest of us, who are much less talented.  I made the rose frame for my wife for Christmas and it turned out pretty good and she loved it.  I attached photos for you… This is just a hobby and stress-reliever for me (it took me about two months to make each one) and without plans like yours, it would be more difficult and less fun.  Once again, thank you.   Blaine Haight, Bakersfield, CA

-Recently I ordered some tools and other items in England. One book took made me curious because of the beautiful cover, showing a wonderful frog. Since recently I had to carve a frog on a banjo neck, it took my special attention. So surprised to see and amazed to discover a new world of woodworking, I like to congratulate you with your creative work and thank you for sharing this with us. Your work is so charming and so honest in expression. It gives me a warm touch inside to see how  drawing and choice of wood grain blend together in a beautiful creation. Thank you again for your beautiful inspiring work. Sincerely yours, Hugo Valcke. Belgium

-I just had to drop you a line regarding the class you taught in Ohio at the Scrollsaw 2010 Expo. I finally got into my wood shop yesterday and all the tips you gave us really worked out well for me. I was a self taught intarsia woodworker and struggling to get my pictures finished. As it was, I only finished one since I started doing them. I applied everything you taught us and am almost finished with my second Intarsia picture and already planning to finish the many more I have laying around in the shop that I never thought I would get back to. You are an excellent Intarsia teacher. Thank you for the great class you taught. Frank Genuise. P.S. I took all the intarsia classes that were offered that weekend (by everyone) but your class was the most interesting and the only class I actually learned anything.

-I got received your Intarsia Woodworking For Beginners book.  I can't believe all of the beautiful pieces that you have made.  What an inspiration.    Matt C. Show Low, AZ

-Thought you'd like to see a pic of your turkey. It turned out great. It is one of the most impressive pieces I've done. It's for a turkey federation banquet, should bring good money. Thanks, Wes C.

-I would like to thank you for your insight in intarsia you have given me. I started in 2006 and have only finished about 10. I purchased one of your books and it has been such a helpful tool. I just wanted to let you know this and to say your projects are indeed a wonderful work of art.   Thank You,   Larry

-Thank you very much for the wonderful (fighting deer) scene, I am not as talented at shaping but i hope i did your idea justice. thanks, sincerely mike from jacksonville.

-Thought you'd like to see a pic of your turkey. It turned out great. It is one of the most impressive pieces I've done. It's for a turkey federation banquet, should bring good money. Thanks, Wes C.
-I ran into a man ... from Dupage County intarsia chapter.  He brought into the woodcraft store a finished 5 foot giraffe from your pattern collection.  It was so outstanding that I am going to try to do the 3 foot version.  Fred C.Downers Grove, IL

-The Clydesdales (pattern) went so well and your pattern was so simple to follow. I view your web site often to get ideas on how to detail my projects with character features and colors. You do so well at making things "realistic". Thanks for helping me make things so much more interesting. I look forward to getting more patterns from you. Thanks, Tom H.

-I just got my "Scrollsaw" magazine and I found your 'Got Cheese' pattern in it. It looked like a fun little pattern so I started it a couple of hours ago. ...And I'm having a ball doing it.... Thanks a lot for that pattern.- - - It's awfully cute. Jim .P.

-The fighting deer is a pattern from Kathy Wise and made a HUGE hit when I took it in to work for the woman that ordered it. When I took it in to work for the woman that ordered it, there was a virtual parade of men coming back to look at it. This is serious deer hunting country so was of keen interest to the hunters. The pictures don't do it justice. At over four feet long it makes an impressive statement! Kathy Wise has some terrific patterns, I just got some from her earlier this month. The patterns for the Christmas ornaments are from Kathy too, they made a big splash. Looks like I will be making a lot more ornaments too!
Judi K. WI

-I have received the patterns today,very happy , fast service , excellent communication ,a great pleasure doing business with you. Best regards, Claude R, Québec city, CANADA

The plans got to the P.O. yesterday but I was not able to get them until today. They arrived in perfect condition and I'll probably get started on the baby giraffe by the end of the week. Thanks again for the great service and I'll get back to you when I'm ready to order 5 or 6 of your larger patterns you have listed at $20.00. Nat

-I received this letter from a customer in Indianapolis, IN:  Dear Chuck, "Enclosed please find remittance for the two Cavalier King Charles intarsia creations. I couldn't have been more pleased with them.  They are truly works of art.  You have so well captured the essence of the sweet and cute little Cavalier pug nosed face. These I got as a birthday presents for my wife.  Her birthday is December 22nd, and it's hard to find something that distinguishes he birthday from Christmas.  These pieces will do the job quite well.  I know she will adore and cherish these little dogs .Thanks for a great job." Kathy, I would not have received such a letter if it was not for your great patterns.  Chuck F.

-I would like to thank you for your insight in intarsia you have given me. I started in 2006 and have only finished about 10. I purchased one of your books and it has been such a helpful tool. I just wanted to let you know this and to say your projects are indeed a wonderful work of art. Thank You,  Larry

-I was surfing the net last week and found (your free frog ornament) on your site, made a copy, enlarged it, and just finished making it. I am thrilled with the piece and I know it will make a nice addition to my friend’s game room wall. So I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated it.   Paul S.   

-I do like your designs.  BTW I have your Intarsia Woodworking Projects book, and enjoy the patterns and tips it contains. .Thank you. Ian B.  Fullerton, CA

-I received the mule deer (custom intarsia piece) yesterday afternoon.  I am very pleased with the finished product!  Thanks so much for working with me in getting this thing done before Christmas.  I appreciate your hard work!  Have a great holiday season...Brandon T.

 -Special thanks to Kathy Wise for a wonderful ornament for the holidays. Christmas ornaments is one of my favorite items to make on the scrollsaw. A tradition in my wife's family is for everyone to give ornaments on Thanksgiving Day. Every year I have made a new piece of Kathy's nativity that was featured in the 2007 Holiday Scrollsaw Woodworking and Crafts. They all look forward to adding to the set and will not entertain the idea of me buying a store ornament for them. Thanks again for the ornament pattern of the month, many of my friends and family will get it this year as well. Happy Sawing, Toymaker

-I bought your book that has the Clydesdale horses and the Cowboy Roper.  I did both of these patterns and entered them into the DFW, SAW picnic competition in Denton, Texas .  I just wanted you to know that I won Best of Show, 1st place & Best in Class for the roper, and I also won 2nd place and Scroller’s Choice with the Clydesdale horses. Thanks for two nice patterns; I really enjoyed making them. ..  My compliments to you on your great patterns.  Jerry P. Willard, MO

Thanks,  Joe V.

-Just wanted to send you a pic of our finished project (from SSW).... We used aspen bought from Lowes and left it natural for the snow, stained it red for the bird.... I had other scraps lying around, so we were able to use ebony for the face, rosewood for the pinecone and the bird's eye, cherry for the foliage..... Thanks for the help, and I look forward to the next project... BTW, my mother LOVED the gift....Thanks, David T.

We all appreciate your generosity. I look forward to seeing what you have planned for Christmas this year.  Tony

-I just love your collection of ornaments offered in the special holiday edition of the Scrollsaw 'Workshop.  They are going to make a great Christmas present for all my family and friends this year.  They are also a wonderful introduction into the world of intarsia without breaking the wood budget.

-I just read my summer 08 edition of Scroll Saw, your article is fantastic, the intarsia bug has struck. Dennis A. Dinuba, CA

-I have really been enjoying your patterns. I recently finished your sunflower wreath from Scroll Saw Magazine, and it turned out great. I like the way you included a separate shaded pattern for sanding reference, it made the project so easy.  My favorite (so far) of your patterns, is the wreath with all the various birds nestled in it. I blew the pattern up to over 3 feet across and made if for above our fireplace in the living room. It looks absolutely beautiful and I get so many compliments on it. I think you have the best intarsia patterns of anyone out there!  Lisa M.  Avon, Ontario, Canada

- I looked at your website...which is really gorgeous by the way...and checked out your large intarsia projects...they are awesome!!!! You really do amazing work!!!  Dirk Boleman   The Art Factory, Platteville WI

-I am just getting started in scroll saw use and am looking at intarsia.  Thankfully, I was directed to your website.  The first thing that I noticed was that you have a LARGE copy of the "Quote from the Ethics Committee of the Scrollsaw Association of the World (SAW) on the use of patterns and copyright laws."  I do not publish my work, nor do I write or draw.  But I have been around art and artists most of my life and piracy is a huge problem.  I am impressed that you address it so clearly and so boldly.  Please keep designing, your art is fantastic and you are a treasure to the woodworking community.  David H.

-You are undoubtedly the best I have ever seen!  I have only been doing Intarsia for about three years, but I have viewed quite a number of others' works, including JGR, and YOU are phenomenal!  CA Ambridge, PA

-Fast work!  My hubby says they are one of the best patterns he has seen.  We ordered the Pomeranian, beagle and the horse.  My husband is really into intarsia.  He does a lot of it, but just for his and our children's benefit.  He has sold some also.  He loves the Art of doing it.  You do great work and thank you for the quickness of your mailing. J.W.

- I like your designs better than anyone else’s that I’ve seen. Yours are so much more detailed and realistic. Most others just look fake. Thank you and keep on designing those great patterns.  V. J.  Burr Oak, MI

-I love your work, especially the intarsia, thanks so much and keep on cutting!  C. A.  Wichita, KS

-I have to say your jaguar jungle is the best intarsia piece I have set my eyes on. I am just finishing one of JGR African Adventure piece which doesn't match your art work, the question I have is, do you sell the pattern for your jaguar jungle and if so how much? I would be honored to make one. THANKS. Mike L. Dorchester, Ontario, Canada
- I love your new jungle mural. What detail and design! I do some work myself...I have finished your turkey and it turned out great! I have not seen such talent. J.D. Point Pleasant, WV
-I really like the jaguar you won the show with. You created a new standard for intarsia. Jeff B.
- Just went to your web site tonight to see what's new, and WOW, what a beautiful piece, and congratulations on the awards. Very much deserved. Would be interested in how you did the spots on the cat, and the foliage is so life like. Incredible job... Keep up the good work, Kathy. M.W.
- Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you what a beautiful job you did on the Jaguar Mural. I recall during the Fox Chapel Open House that you mentioned you would like to do one but WOW!!! That Intarsia piece is without question the absolute best I have ever seen. The whole composition just "pops" for me and the fact that I have a preference for big cats makes it even more appealing. You have received several great comments on it on the Fox Chapel message board which is where I first learned of it. Congratulations on a wonderful work of art!!!!....N.M.
- Thanks Kathy, it was a great pattern (custom pattern) and the person I made it for was really pleased. Again , your patterns are the best. C.W.
- I am excited about making your (2007 issue) Nativity ornament collection, and plan to make two sets, one for each of my daughters! ...(I love doing this stuff!) ...Thank you for creating such great patterns! S.R. Winter Haven, Fl.
- THANK YOU Kathy, A while ago I ordered a "Rearing Stallion", #606, from you... I am having more fun doing this piece than any other piece that I have done in years. Thank you very much for making that pattern available. I anticipate having it done for a first showing on Saturday, and I'm certain that it will "WOW" the crowd. J. P.
- I just saw your "Jaguar Jungle" and I have to say that is the most AWESOME Intarsia project I have ever seen. I have been making Intarsia for over 8 years now with 105 projects under my belt and I have never seen anything like it. Recently, for some reason, I lost my desire to make Intarsia. It's been several months now since I made anything, but your "Jaguar Jungle" has re-inspired me and I really think I'm going to start again soon... You're the best Intarsian there is!!! D. A. Pasco, WA
- Your work is beautiful! My fiance Lloyd has done a couple intarsias ...( he) is very critical & he had nothing but praise for your work! C.J. Pekin, IL
- I found your website and your wonderful horses in IntarsiaÉ I was farming in IL and raising horses, Palominos and Quarter Horses ...Your intarsia Horses are the best I've ever imagined. M. C. Clinchfield, GA
- Some people do Intarsia but your work is the best I have ever seen! T. O.
- Your work is totally amazing. There are not words enough to describe the beauty and fine perfection of your work. The way you capture the realism of the piece with contour sanding and the difference in wood thickness just brings your work to life. So much so, I would be tempted not to touch the piece hanging on the wall for fear the animal would move... I am looking forward to seeing more of your work in SSW&C, not to mention getting your published work "Intarsia Woodworking Projects" in the fall. W. B. Downingtown, PA
- ....all i can say is WOOOW!!!! That's a lot of work!(Jaguar Jungle) I'm not sure I'd even attempt something that intricate, it must of taken months. You definitely are theee best intarsian I've ever met. I'm honored to know you. p.s. love a signed copy of book when it comes out. M.G.
- Saw the picture of Whitetail Woods in SCROLL SAW magazine. It is absolutely beautiful. D. F.
- I recently came across the San Diego County Fair Class Awards, 1st Place Winners list and saw your Jaguar Jungle piece. Your work is fantastic. I try to take my intarsia pieces to that next level that you have certainly achieved. T. O.
- My first lot of patterns were great- you've got yourself another regular customer. ....Keep up the good work. L.M. Cambridge, Ont.
- I read in (the) Summer 2007 issue that I was not the only one who enjoyed the Intarsia ornaments by Kathy Wise, as stated by Roy Whitford on the bragging page. They were fun, easy and looked great. Every time I made a set they seemed to disappear to family and friends. I hope (you) will design some more for Christmas 2007. S. Smith
- I'm sure glad you're out there, I keep getting orders for items where I need your patterns. You make patterns with the sawer or intarsia artist in mind. It's obvious you have been there. Thank you, G. E. Hustontown, PA
- We just finished some of your Christmas patterns from the latest Wood Magazine and had a lot of fun with them. B. M. Windsor, SC

- Your patterns give me peace and calm. ....I have done the rose intarsia and the Easter bunny. ..Keep on designing, I enjoy your work. K. L. Sulphur, LA
- After meeting you at the 2005 Branson Scroll Saw Picnic, I ordered some of your ScrollSaw intarsia patterns. One of the patterns was a Rearing Stallion... The project itself took me approximately 50 hours to complete and the result was so stunning to me, my family, other friends and acquaintances that I wanted to share some pictures with you. ... I'd like to compliment you on the beauty and realism of your design. It is truly the finest work that I've ever done and I am grateful to you for creating a pattern which inspired me to produce something as close to a work of art as I have ever been ( and perhaps will ever be) able to come. B.G.
- I am Amazed with the number of patterns that you have and the quality of your work. I have done one or two intarsia pieces; however I want to do many more. I found you add in the ScrollSaw WorkShop magazine, and thought that I would check you out! Man am I glad I did! I am now a true fan! L. S. PE Canada
- This is a long overdue thank you for the wonderful patterns you have been adding to the Scrollsaw Workshop magazines. I'm fairly new to woodworking, 4 years, so I'm still trying out all the different projects. My wife has really enjoyed the wreaths I've made; both the bird wreath and the poinsettia wreath. I did the turkey last year and entered it and a Lora Irish fretwork piece in the Minnesota State Fair. I got blue ribbons for each. This was the first time I've entered a juried contest, so I was well pleased. I hope to enter another one of your patterns this year. B.N, Minnesota
- First of all, thanks for your feature "Whimsical Christmas Ornaments" in the Holiday 2006 Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts Issue. You finally gave me the "guts" to try intarsia with your Christmas Ornament feature. Now I want to learn more... H.H. Wendell, NC.

- I just wanted to say thank you again for the opportunity to work with you and learn about intarsia. I had no idea that it would be so much fun!
