  • new "Gentle Nature" plaque...bald eagle

    I painted this a few days ago but now I want to convert it to a scroll saw pattern. It may take a while, but I'm going to do it. It has a lot of writing in it and will be time-consuming but I think it would make a great pattern.
    What do you all think? There are some great minds here, so how about some comments and suggestions?

    It will make a great cutting. Looking forward to your rendition.

      That is a great looking painting. I'm sure it going to make a great cutting too.

          WOW, Bubba, that is a great painting & verse too. I really like the Eagle & just a thought about the talon--- Should it be smaller in comparison to the Eagle? Just a thought, now, it is great as it is. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

            Is the quote your original or is it from . . . .?

            I like it. I could see it on an eggshell kind of oval - w/ words on top and on bottom and an eagle silhouette cut out in the middle. It seems like it will be quite powerful - what ever pattern you develop.

              Thanks for all of the comments and suggestions. I am about ready to post my pattern. I used a different claw...one with a little less detail. Perk, I'll use your suggestion about keeping the claw more in perspective to the eagle, too.

                If you want to cut down the verbage, you could eliminate the last sentence without losing the meaning.

                  Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                  We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                  He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                  What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
