Hi, I apologize if this info should have been easy to find, I couldn’t find it. First I am not yet a woodworker, but trying to get there, have a shop almost ready to use, now I gotta learn WHAT to do. Got about 12 side jobs (I’m an electrician) I gotta do for family and friends, can’t find any time right now for the basement. The powers of the universe have decided to get involved. A very good friend of my wife has a son, very introverted. Parents are very (how do I put it, terrified he’ll get hurt, no matter what it is) protective. Kid is kinda not growing up, doing typical boy stuff (or at least what this 58 year old guy remembers as boy stuff). They came by the place today, and I mentioned to mom, that if her son would like to make something on the scroll saw, I would love to set it up. She talked to him about it, and the reply was “Please, Please, Please” So long story short, (I know, too late) I have a Shopsmith, mostly still unused. I have the scrollsaw attachment, and will figure out how to set it up and use it. The thought I’m having is to see if he would like to make a cursive example of his name (Everett), and maybe a MOM, and DAD for the respective Mothers, and Fathers Day, coming up. So where can I get a pattern, or stencil of cursive writing? I am assuming you match the pattern/stencil size to wood size? He also likes planes and I’m thinking that getting plane plans online should be pretty easy. I’m just thinking that starting with the names would be within his limits, and not so difficult as to turn him off, but the end result would be nice enough to feel good about making it. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions welcome, please remember that experience wise, I’m only a half step ahead of Everett. LOL
Don't know how many of us make clocks (big and small). I'm always looking for unique plans that I haven't seen before. Stumbled upon this site and marveled at the uniqueness of the clocks. Boyer clocks If anyone has other sites with unique clock patterns would you share them? Thanks, guys, and keep the sawdust flying fred
I was digging around in our old website files last night and I was able to extrapolate about a hundred scrolling patterns that our members contributed back in the day, I'll have them up in our "Downloads" area this week, free for all to use. Here is one of them. This is really cool stuff!
Where's a good place to put your blade starting holes? I have been putting them away from the cut line but when I'm cutting and get back to the starting point I have a heck of a time meeting in the right place. Seems I always have to sand or file the area smooth.
For those who need new patterns, I have a collection of military patterns that I can scan and email to anyone that is interested. I also have thousands more that I can do the same. If you're interested email me at email@example.com
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
