  • My latest cutting

    I saw this Jeff Zafino pattern when I first started scrolling and just had to have it, It has been on the wall next to my scroll saw ever since, I finally took it down and made a copy and put it to wood. 6 hours later, here it is.
    Forgive me, I was so excited and happy with it I had to get it in a frame and look at it. I am going to put it in a different frame with matting and a black felt back ground. But like I said I couldn't wait to share it.

        Wow!!!

        Bill,

        You have done a very nice job.

        No wonder you were anxious to see it framed, and I'm glad you shared it so quickly.

        Be proud my friend, that is very nice work.

        Respectfully,

            6 hours???? You cut that in 6 hours???? Holy crud, I'd still be drilling holes after 6 hours!!!!! You, Bill, are my NEW hero (sorry lucky and jedi)!

            Wowohmygawddidyouseewhatbilldone?????

            Geez, I'm excited for you. Nicely done, sir.

              Thats awesome work Bill!
              I have thought about doing a Zafino pattern but I think
              it is still out of my league, but if you did that in 6 hrs.
              You are the man! nice job.

                That's impressive. A lovely design and well cut.

                  Goodmorning everyone! I'm still trying to focus on the screen and let my coffee kick in! Thanks for your compliments it means alot to me as always coming from you all.

                  First let me say I did modify the pattern a little, I didn't drill about 20 holes in the grassy forground that were called for , and on the mountain background I took some artistic license and joined a few sections together not because pieces broke but I wanted to reduce the # of holes and make it a " little bit of my own" as Marcel has said. The piece I cut had a total of 94 holes so really not that much. The forground took most of the time to cut.

                  I stack cut three pieces of 1/4 oak, using FD-2/0 spiral blades. I changed blades every hour for a total of 6. Although I should of changed them a little more, I tend to push the blades to their limit, I'll cut for 15 min. longer then I should. Oh, well what can I say, I love those blades!!!

                      Bill,
                      I love it!
                      How many of Jeff's patterns have you cut? With the modifications you made, where on a scale of, say, 1 to 10 (10 being beastly difficult) would you put this one? I do wish someone who has done a lot of his patterns would do this for a bunch of them, so that those of us who have been putting off trying them would have some sort of guidelines. (and fewer excuses!)
                      I can see why you were so eager to show that baby off - it is awesome. I'd say 6 hours very well spent.

                        Sandy I've thought the same thing, though I believe most of Jeff's patterns are classified as advanced, but whats hard for one person may not be at all difficult for another..... I stack cut, so that add's a little bit of durability especially when cutting some of the more fragile area's. This was my 3rd pattern by Jeff and I would put it at a 5. It wasn't terribly stressing, and there really wasn't as many starter holes to drill as it may appear. I'm getting ready to start another of his titled "freight train" that has 3 times the amount of holes this one had. And in looking at it today after drilling the holes, I do believe it will be more of a challange. There seems to be a lot more fragile area's and thin viening cuts in the engine and cars of the train. With many pieces or areas with what I call floaters. I'll study it a little more tonight and get my strategy lined up on how to cut it.
                        Don't be put off on doing one! Pick one you like and go for it!!
