  • William Shakespeare

    Hi Everyone. I was wondering if you good people could help me out. I was at the craft fair yesterday and one of the other stall holders showed a lot of interest in my booth and asked me if I could help him out for a design depicting William Shakespeare. The guy works for the London museum and next year the museum is celebrating something to do with Shakespeare and also working in conjunction with the olympics. This would be a big breakthrough for me if i can come up with a suitable design. They want me to add Globe Theatre to the design and also have William Shakespeare on it as well. I do not have a problem with the wording as I can do that in fireworks or photoshop. I have included a picture but just need Bill S on his own without the other bits. I could possibly fret cut this as it is but I feel one of you good people could improve on this. I will probably cut it from a nice hardwood. Many thanks in advance.

        Well, my football teams were all getting beaten and I liked this pattern so well, I decided I would get a little culture and spend some quality time with Will. So here he is. Hope you enjoy him.

          You did a great job there Don. I have submitted the design which was very acceptable, the guy has to show the head man now and he in turn will show the olympic committee. I have to add "The Globe Theatre" to the top and wills name at the bottom, I think they wanted the theatre included as well but that is asking to much to go into an 5 x 7 frame. Thanks again Don.

            The new Circular Scroll Saw Designs book form Fox Chapel
            by Tom in Ashland
            Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

            Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

            I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

            Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
