  • Hello all

    I am new to ssw so I will let you all know a bit about myself I am 21 (on Dec 11) I work in Alexander, Manitoba for my family owned art buisness called Dundee Designs I spend many hours everyday behind the scroll saw (30in Excaliber) I mainly work with 16Gage Aluminum and mdf from 1/8 to 1in thick. I think cutting aliminum is the most fun. So that is a bit about me and I better get back to work. Ill get some pics of my work soon. Oh ya, thank you CanadianScroller for all your help

      All new members are welcome here, of course, but it's particularly nice to welcome a scroller who uses metal . There don't seem to be many around.

      Have you any examples of your work to show us?

          Those are pretty cool. Nice work. Welcome to the board and the Canadian Posse that seems to be taking over this site. Good thing for me I'm a double citizen, so I can flip over to whatever side wins without anyone noticing.

              Welcome from me too - and if Jeff can flip between being American or Canadian I guess I can flip between being Canadian and a Brit

              Those are interesting pieces you have there - very nice. I like the mix of metal and (I assume) acrylic on that horse.

              Has Dundee Designs got a website?

                Sorry we dont have a website yet but we will get to it soon you know how how things go work work work!! actualy the horse is 2 layers the top layer is all aluminum and the second layer is a print laminated on aluminum and cut out it gives a cool effect but the pics do nothing for it but the large abstracts are painted with acrylic.

                  Hi Dundee! Those are marvellous pieces, I like the abstracts very much.

                  What blades do you use for cutting aluminium?

                          Welcome Dundee!

                          It is good to see different media and different styles.

                            Welcome aboard Dundee,

                            It seems you bring something fresh with you, I really enjoy some of your work and am also curious about the technical aspects.

                            I especially love pictures 2 to 5 (abstract to cowboy) they are truly innovative in technique and content.

                            Thank-you for joining and wanting to share with us.

                            DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                                Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                                Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                                Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                                Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
