  • BandAid's Anvil

    This is probably late, but I haven't been over at the picturetrail site to prowl for a long time. Capt. Bandaid, that Anvil and Hammer are REALLY neat!!!!

    Nice work, and quite innovative.

    Al, thanks. It was really pretty simple. I cut it out on the bandsaw, shaped it with the beltsander and drum sander. Finish sanded it, stained and lacquered it, glued it down. It is currently sitting on my desk at work with my business cards resting between the hammer and the anvil.

        That's a beauty, Cap'n. Is that a little reverse metallurgy? Of course, modern metallurgists arre material scientists, dabbling in all materials. You're going to get me hooked on knife making one of these days. We have everything I need at work, since we do our own tool and die work and heat treat our own tooling. Sounds like I'm missing a little gumption, huh? I can always claim that heat treating isn't summer work in Ohio; I'll have to wait until winter. Keep up the good work and keep posting those pictures.

                The anvil is black walnut as is the hammer head. The base and hammer handle are butternut. The anvil measures about 4' tall and 8' long.

                      Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                      And on each cloud touching the body ?
                      I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                      Thanks

                      I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                      Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                      What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                      Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                      I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
