  • Not really scrolled, but

    I started to scroll these at 45 degrees to give a mitre, but gave up and used a router.
    The young lady in the picture was a student at Purdue University-Calumet here in Hammond.
    In December 2004, while crossing the street to get to a class, she was struck by two cars and killed. Her family and friends decided to honor her with a scholarship in Elementary Education which was her major. My sister is a professor at Purdue and also the chairperson of the scholarship committee. She asked me if I could make the plaques to match the case they had bought. The plaques are genuine Mahagony stained with Behlen's Blood-Red Solar-Lux and finished with Semi-gloss Poly. After hearing the story of how she died, I only charged for the material, as her parents were paying for the plaques to be made.
    I'm kind of proud of how they came out.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    It is hard to bevel with the scrollsaw and have a straight edge.
    The story is a moving one. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

      That's weird, on my Volume disk 5, in the index I have Aticle index, Issue PDF's, and pattern pullouts.
      The pattern pullouts are broken up into 8-1/2 x 11 s

      At he end of each issue is a copy of the entire pullout for that issue....
