  • Fed Up!

    Would someone please post a picture of some really ugly or poorly done work I am running out of words to complement the exceptional work that everyone on this site keeps doing.

    I've got lots to pick from, but don't have a digital camera. Darn the luck! Sorry I can't help you.

      Actually that's a great idea Rolf
      We could do a series of pictures of what can go wrong, along with information on why it did and what to do to correct it.

      Maybe we could get pictures from thick skinned people who do not mind the criticism.
      If some of the more experienced scrollers did the work it may help some of the newbies to know we all started at the same level.

      By the way, we still make mistakes we just dont show people

          All I have to do is take a picture of my scrap wood box, it has several rejects where things went wrong. It wasn't "MY" fault it was the scroll saw's fault.
          One of these days my scroll saw will get it RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Bad gaps in intarsia

            Here is an intarsia called O'Happy days that I threw away because of the gaps between the parts. The glue set before I could get the pieces together. A neighbor swiped it out of the scrap barrel and liked it. And she stills likes it.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                Hi Rolf-- Didn't you know that we are the only ones who can see the mistakes we make? And each piece is different even if it's the same pattern. I use my "mistakes" to teach me what I don't want to do on the next one. Doesn,t mean it happens. But it sure is fun to keep trying to be perfect. Besides my children told me not to discuss "my mistakes." So I guess I won't tell you how many mistakes I have made in the last 20 years. Woodworking stuff that is.

                  I have found, there is no bad projects, or work, only bad conseptions. I don't trow any of my projects away. only the judgments i had about them. Evie

                    I like the way you think Evie. I do the same thing. It used to really bother me if someone didn't like something I had made. But I just figure it's their opinion. If I like it that's all that matters. The only time I'm concerned if someone likes something is if they actually pay me for a piece. Otherwise, I figure it's art and not everyone likes the same kind of art.

                      You should have named this Joe's link.
                      I am still trying to get good enough to post my "First Scroll saw cuts".

                        We've got such a wealth of talented scrollers that I just can't bring myself to keep thanking everyone for showing us all their projects. So if anyone's posted a project recently and is asking themself, "I wonder if Gill's upset about something - she hasn't commented on my work" please forgive me. I seem to be suffering from 'good project overload' and need to top up my superlatives .

                        It's fabulous that we've got so many very talented people here. (Drat - there go a couple more superlatives... .)

                        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                          I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                          If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                          The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                          I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
