  • At sea??

    Well, I was supposed to go back to sea last week, but apparently there is something wrong with the ship. Darn. Now I will go this week sometime, but only for a week or two.

    Anyway, Since I was home, I cut out a POW/MIA pattern I was working on. I have one in a book, but decided to make my own pattern, and that is what I did and it looks great.

    Now I am working on another military theme. If any of you happen to have the Fox Chappel Book Scroll Saw Military Designs by Mike and Vicky Lewis, you can get a grasp on what I am trying to do. I took the four basic emblems, Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, (with a little modification in photoshop) and am going to put them on one project. I can't decided if I want all four in a row, or in some kind of pattern, or with some kind of slogan. Really driving me nuts. Any suggestions?

    Try one in each corner with perhaps a flag or saying such as "To Honor Those Who Serve" in the center.

      Ok, back from sea. Still no idea what to do about this one.

        I've hesitated to mention this design because it's British. Perhaps you could adapt it?

        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 don't remember which one I used but I think it was somewhere around #12 which is .029 diameter. Anything between 12 and 19 will work you would just adjust your slot width. There is a pattern for bending it to shape do you have that?

          Over the years I've found that cutting old wooden plates can be very rewarding. Most of them are very good wood and when you finish your cut out the plate already has a nice finish on it.. I normally buy mine at yard sales or Good Will whenever I can find them....

          I've found in the past that you can find some very nice wood from old wooden plates. When you finish your cut out the wood already has a nice finish. I am only adding a picture of 6 but I have done many of these....
