  • Very interesting and inspiring article.

    While doing research for a member on google I ran across this article. You may find it rather interesting to read. I found the article to be rather inspiring considering it was probably written back in the 40's. It does not really say that I can find.

    I hope you find it enjoyable reading.

    That was a very interesting read Mike.
    This lady must have been quite a pioneer in her day. Thanks for the post.

        That is some very interesting reading, Mike. I remember my parents had one of the Moon shelf & stairway pieces on our wall. I think it was all made from 1/4 in. ply. with copper wire for railings on the stairs & shelves. I rough sketched one & cut it with the star & shelves, but, didn't have the stairs on it. I thought they were very interesting pieces, even when I was a youngster. Thanks for letting us read that.

          Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

          Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

          Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
          Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
