  1. I just printed two different sizes of this guy, a ten and a twelve inch model. Don't know when or if I ever carve this guy but I got it in my pictures for when I get around to it. I do have the wood but these pecans been working the fool out of us. He sure won't look like this though. I like my indians with skin and hair and feathers!
  2. Live and learn. Fred can you take the measurements from the times you made the other bowls and use them or get close? The bowl in the middle was the first one I made right after I got my new Dewalt in 99. All I had was a little picture from an old magazine. It looked to be about 3 or 4 inches in diameter so I went three or four times larger and got close to what it originally looked like. Around the top I used small drawer pulls and for the feet, hose are air tool parts for I used to repair the tools I sold while being a Mac Tool distrubutor. They still have the O rings on
  3. I made a couple of new bowls for a customer at church.

  5. For you guys that's worried about trying to decide what it is I do, I don't know either but I sure have fun in the shop at doing what ever it is. This new stuff is from Michaels and is less that 1.50 for a 2 ounce bottle after the discount...so I got 20 different colors.. With and with out the flash!!!! I haven't put any clear on yet. The stains I've been using for years is what I brought when we moved from the last house so I thought I would see what new products have come along since back yonder.. I didn't buy any wood color stains this time for I still have
  6. When finished with the last one I immediately thought I could do better..not just in a place or two. Maybe because it was easier than most of my projects. But maybe the reason I already had glued up and prepared the slab for the next project...and I think I wanted more wild color for the ole rooster to stand out in that crowd. So I'm at this stage right now.. I had already used biscuits between the boards so I am starting to see the row of boats again. I tried to stay above them but the edge tapering is bringing them out.
  7. This morning I looked over what I did last night by bringing up the man chicken to the top. When I do things I have no plans for the next step as Paul Harvey would say.. I show what I mean by not thinking...See the parts of three biscuits up top inside the frame..I put them 1/4" from the bottom of the 1" thick maple.. All these pieces will be glued on to the 1/2" BB which I installed to the back side of the frame so I can have something to carry around as I go from station to station doing all kinds of shaping of the pieces of wood..I didn't need biscuits to start with but that's just a
  8. So how do y'all attach a backing to a fretwork piece? Specifically, how do you apply the adhesive so that it dosen't get on the finished sides? Additionally I would like to use a waterproof glue (Welcome sign for the front door), polyurethane comes to mind but it seems to be pretty messy and ugly if too much is applied. Thoughts?
  9. So, if you use a scrollsaw, what brand, make or model do you use? Pros and cons appreciated. I'll start; Delta Model 40-560 Type II with quick clamp, blade clamp. Pros, not terribly expensive, Two speed, very fast blade clamp/unclamp (important for fretwork), up front tension release/adjustment , fast tension release. Cons, some vibration, small table, never use the slow speed, adjusting the blade clamp for different blades cumbersome.
  10. Finally get to deliver this today and exchange it for an older model!
  11. From the album: small basket

    This is a small item I make to use up scrap and provide an anti suicide message. I give these away free at craft shows to anyone who wants or needs them. Look up the semi colon initiative.
  12. To start the "Tips and Tricks" off on a good note, I thought of what basics we should all be aware of and some tips to make the best cuttings we can. Remember, guys and gals, there is NO right or wrong answer to any of our topics. What best works for you is the way it should be. That being said, I think we can always learn a little from our fellow scrollers. Please chime in with your suggestions of your ways of doing things. It will always be appreciated by all. BLADE ALIGNMENT We all realize that the blade should be perpendicular to the table unless we are doing a
  13. this is not the same box but is the way I start building one. I have to print out 10 exact patterns. The tenth one is just solid with no holes for drawers. All the pieces I cut out for the drawers are later glued together except for the front of the drawer and the back of the drawer. I use dowels to line up everything . If I don't use the dowels when clamping two pieces together it could slip just a hair one way or the other and cause lots of extra sanding or cause for the trash can. Each set of holes has to be in a different place than the next side of the pieces. And yo
  14. This is an early project I did for the bosses office. Last week he paid me high praise when he said he'd always thought I did it on the laser.
  15. Posted this last year, might have to make a few more this time around... Only takes a 1 x 6 x 8' to make all four of these.....need to find the patterns again, and the other supplies.... This one is a bit "blocky", I have been known to use a router table and a 3/8" round-over bit, to round things out.. Big red bow, and a red nose. Black sharpie for the eyes. Nails and glue to hold things in place. Hot-melt glue to hold the "antlers" ....just in case Rudolph should fall over. Hot melt will give way before any of the wood will. Usually stain the ant
  16. I guess I'll have to dig around for the patterns, again.. Usually made out of a 1x6 pine board, a few nails, and some red things. Sometimes, I even use real walnut for the antlers.... Hot melt glue to hold the antlers in place....because the hot melt will give way before the wood will, IF it is knocked onto the floor Eyes were done with just a Sharpie. Bow was held in place by a dab of hot melt glue. This one is a bit plain, other times, I have fired up the router table, with a 3/8" round-over bit, and gave Rudolph a more rounded body. Just 6
  17. We have 3 church families, 2 with son's that are deployed overseas and 1 lady that beat breast cancer 9 years ago. I have some left over 1/4" BB plywood and with the weather and the shop warm enough to get out I cut these for them. We'll give them out Sunday.
  18. Here is a family of Easter Bunny banks that I made for a customer for her daughter.  My customer is teaching her daughter to save so there are banks for Pennies, Nickles, Dimes, Quarters, Dollar Bills and Foreign Coins.   The purple bunny is bigger than the rest it is 10 inches tall x 14 inches long x 5 inches wide.  All the other are 8 inches high x 10 inches long x 3 3/4 inches wide.     DW
  19. I finally got a scrollsaw up and working and adjusted so I can start playing around with it and do stuff like this:
  20. I've been following some other Scroll Sawing forums and it sounds like Mike has retired and sold his business to Wooden Teddy Bear. It sounds like it was on his terms so enjoy your retirement, Mike!
  21. A thought occurred to me yesterday whilst sawing on some 1/4" Baltic Birch, stacked to 2. "I have been using this same blade for quite some time and it's still working. When will I know when it's time to change?" My answer to myself "The blade will let you know, dummy." I know, I know, talking to myself whilst cutting/sawing. Admit it, guys, you have done the same thing only you were taking to the wood or the tool or the blood spurting from a fresh cut. Anyhow, I thought it would be a great topic. I will reserve MY thoughts until a few others have chimed in. No, I'm not b
  22. Had found a busted up shelf thingy a while back. After some fussing and cussing, got almost back together. It was missing a couple parts, was loose in a few others. Decided to just build a copy of it in pine. Went out to Lowes with a $20 bill in hand, came back home with 65 cents. Had a decent stack of thin "project" pine boards. Used a couple parts of the old unit to serve as patterns. The two middle shelves were easy to do, just trace the part out, scrollsaw it out, and set it aside. However, the top and bottom shelves were wider than any of the boards I bought. So a
