    Steam Engine pattern

    Keith....I have one Steam Engine pattern. email me and I'll dig it out and send it to you. It's a pierced portrait type pattern containing several hundred cuts.
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

      Keith;
      I got commissioned to make this one for a retired train engineer so instead of making just one I stack sawed two of them as shown . He bought his right away and the other one is also long gone.
      I don't know if this is any help to you or not but I ordered the pattern expressly for the gentleman that wanted the first one . The pattern is available from Wildwooddesigns.
      The picture was taken before I put first an oil finish and then a couple coats of semi gloss laquer on them. They both sold before I got a chance to take the final picture.
      They are in solid red oak.

        Keith--
        Don't know how "complicated" you want the steam engine patterns to be, but Jeff Zaffino has several on his web site at http://www.advancedscrollsawpatterns.com that are really good ones.

          Keith, Jeff Zaffino's "Engine 86" pattern is in the Sept. 2005 issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts magazine. I cut it from a singe piece of 1/8" plywood with a straight blade. The most difficult one I have cut so far. Mick

            steam engine pattern

            Keith,I have a pattern from aback issue of Scrollsaw Workshop that is called "Trainsition" it is a pattern of an steam and a diesel engine. You cut the diesel out a darker wood or stain darker the cut and glue the steam engine on top of that. Looks very nice. If you would like this pattern E-mail me and I'll send it to you.

                    Keith and Rich......Check your email. I sent the pattern to both of you as an attachment. Sorry for the delay....I just found the book it was in today. (My filing system is akin to a chinese fire drill!!)

                      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...

                      I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                      Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                      Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
