  • Neal Moore's Tiger Portrait in Fall 2005 issue

    I am starting the Tiger Portrait Neal Moore posted in the Fall 2005 issue. I thought I remembered an additional article he posted on the Scroll Saw Work Shop site that described how to stain the eyes of the tiger in his portrait. Of course I can't find it now. Does anyone remember where it was posted or have I finally lost my mind?

    I'm sorry I don't remember the article, but I did the Tiger Portrait out of Neal's book Animal Portraits in Wood published by Fox.

    What I did on the eyes is paint them with acrylic paint. Came out quite well.

    Here is a picture of it (I also got a 1st place ribbon)

      Tiger Eyes

      Very nicely done, Bill. Neal's projects are terrific. JP, I had an article in the magazine concerning my "Wildcats of the World" project and an additional feature about painting tiger eyes was on the magazine's website. In the Search box at the top of the page when you open the Forum, type in carved fretwork. Hit page 3, scroll to the next to last item Carving on Fretwork There are detailed instructions for one of my techniques for painting tiger eyes. Regards, Dick

        Bill - You certainly did earn the 1st place ribbon for the tiger. I hadn't considered acrylic paint until you mentioned it. I'll put that in my toolbox of lessons learned. Ref: JP4 Yeah I'm a retired CW4 Army pilot and I go by JP hence the play on words.
        Dick - Thanks for the link. I'm very interested in the big cats and you steered me into more possibilities. I appreciate it. JP

              Bill- The visual I had of the article on the eyes was the article you wrote , not Neal's. My mistake. I did find it again. You mentioned in the step by step process the colors to use but I didn't pick up if this was acrylic paint you were using.

                  The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                  Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                  The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                  Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                  Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                  Now,...

                  It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...
