  • Making Wooden " People and Pets" book

    From the first time I saw these designs I had to make them. The first one I cut was in the Spring issue SSWWC. Well they just published a book of these stick figures by Jean-Bernard Germe. I had to order it. What a fun collection of 24 projects. This is my start. I am using scraps as they are not very big. The tree in the Holly log slice is my own.(2" tall) the stick figures are about 4" tall. They are all fast easy cuts. I really like the reader. I will do the female version of it also. I still have to put a coat or two of satin lacquer on them. The tree takes about three minutes to cut and another few minutes to carve (power carve using the Vortex F5) The paint is Unicorn spit.

        I am with Denny, BUT I love the tree. I have thought about something like that, but you have so much more detail than i thought. Really 3D.

          Nice work Rolf. I also like the tree the most although I also think the stick figures are kind of cute and amusing.

            I am constantly looking for some new direction in my projects so that I don't lose my interest. Something about the simplicity of stick figures got me. We will see how they sell, I need to do a short video of making the trees. They really are fun to make.

                I am pretty sure they will sell quite nicely. My wife sent me a picture of one of these and said 'make these!'. I had to research where they came from and if the patterns were available, and found the book and ordered off Amazon. They are really simple to cut, and just... cute? They are all happy and show love in almost every pattern.

                  Here is the reader stick figure with a bit of added detail/ This pallet wood so a bit soft and I got some blead around the eyes.

                    I started out cutting the stick figures and quickly got into wall hangers. I'll have to say the stick figures draw a lot of attention at shows. I really like the tree, Rolf! The live edge really makes the piece. Paint job is great also.

                      Hi Jim.

                      The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                      The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                      The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                      Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                      sure you...

                      Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                      I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                      Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                      I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                      Well done!

                      Bstark, take a look at out simple table setup that I have posted in Bettys posting. This fair is an annual fund raiser for our churches women's group. So I pay for two 8 ft tables (so I don't need to bring any) A couple of nice table clothes and I put shutters on each end and made special shelves...
