  • Jumping in with both feet.

    Well,...hello everyone.My name is Rodney,and I became a new member just a couple of days ago.I live in Red Cross, N.C. which is a mile from Frog Pond, N.C. UH....SAY WHAT??! FROG POND??Yes there is such a place.Red Cross is about 30 miles east of Charlotte, N.C.I'd like to say it's an honor to be a part of this group!I've been scrolling part time for a little over a year and a half, and fortunately I haven't collected any "wooden frisbees."I haven't misplaced any fingers yet, either.The best part about scrolling is --it's fun!!

      From the looks of your gallery - I'd say you landed on both feet when you jumped!

          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me.

          I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
