  • Plywood Sculpture

    I am searching for patterns/instructions for making plywood sculptures with my grinder. Tawsom Wood Sculptures sells a package and I have the Arbortech Seahorse plan, but have been unable to find others. any help or direction would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I found what you're talking about at Tawsom Wood Sculptures | Sculpt in wood. Start a woodworking business. . They look very cool, but more like carving than scrollsaw work. You will likely find more familiarity with similar patterns on the carving forum at Woodcarving Illustrated Message Board .

    From a scrollsawing perspective you might be able to create a basic form with layers of plywood and then smooth down the edges with your grinder. There was a goose project with a similar technique a while back. I think this one, but I don't see it actually listed in the issue 33 order page at Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Issue 33 Holiday 2008 so that may be the wrong issue.

        I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

        I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

        But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

        +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.
