  • Tried Something Different

    I thought I'd try something different, this is from the Ulitmate Scrolling Patterns Collection. It is a layer scape pattern by Lora Irish on page 15.

    Before I could get a real decent pic of it my battery died so for now here is the best I can do.

    The back layer is cut from 1/4 cherry ply, and the front layer is 1/8 BB ply, with a pecan and walnut stain. Hey, I told ya I tried something different....

      I do like layered projects and that's a real goodie .

        Great job on that Bill. Lora's one of my favorite designers. I've adapted several of her wonderful patterns to different projects. I've yet to try a layered piece but I really like the way they look.

              Hi Bill, I really like that. I love the choice of woods, and the photos not bad either.
              Thanks for sharing

                Looks great to me! Question though, does one normally stack the layers or put spacers between them or is this mostly a "which ever way you like it" type of question?

                Cheers,

                  Nice work Bill,

                  I like the colors.
                  They seem to have come out pretty good.

                  Regards,

                      Outstanding job, sir hillbilly!!!! You are officially on my "HERO" list.

                      I also like her patterns. There are MANY, MANY wildlife patterns out there, but Lora Irish is one of the very few who actually get them to look like the animals really look! Just my HO.

                        Thanks again everyone! I really did enjoy doing it, I'm going to do more in the near future. This one actually was given as a Birthday present last night, and it was well recieved. I don't even think the stain was dry yet!

                        Draken, this piece was stacked directly on top of each other, there are some that use spacers, but I think for the most part it is up to you and how much depth you want to achieve.

                          got mine in the mail today. Thanks.Cute and befitting. Now I need to know how it’s made/what it’s made from. (On everyone gets theirs of course.)...

                          At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                          The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                          Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
