  • Id be greatfull for any help

    Hi folks,
    Yet another newbi, I’ve just set 2 pictures on the boards I’ve been doing scroolsawing for 2 years now and making my own patterns. Please take a look at my pictures and feel free to criticise them I wont mind if they are harsh since the only way to learn is to be offered advice. I should say that the picture with the gentleman with the beard has to much varnish on it. I tried to use a new technique whereby I over sprayed the picture with varnish and left it there for a few moments the wiped the excess off then after it was dry I re varnished it, obviously it didn’t work, advice on how to create shadow using varnish would be helpful. Sorry this is a long intro. by the way I live in the UK Wales to be precise, so if there is any auk scrollers looking at this I would like to be in contact with you , so maybe we can set up a club. To my other potential friends in the scroll saw world a big hi and thanks for any help.

    Many thanks

    Steve or Taffy its up to you

    You've certainly got a lot of ability with the saw. Those pictures look very impressive, although it's difficult to pass a comment because the photographs are rather small.

    What saw do you use for your work, and what material are the portraits cut from?

    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.

        Taffy, I am impressed with your work. I would like to know more about the one you call "Hard Work". The finish is really interesting and the portrait seems to come to life. What materials/finishes did you use? Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing more of your efforts and hearing your opinions.

            Farmers market "survey"
            by Linda In Phoenix
            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

            Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

            So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
            I like the fact...

            Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
