  • still with the birds...

    First pic is the the pattern
    its about 7 " x 4"

    Second pic the cut out
    Cut it from 1/8 oak, with 0/2 blade. After i cut it i tried to add detail in the feathers, but didnt come out too good. Today i dawned on me all i had to do was use a bigger blade to get mor spacing....duh

    Third pic burned in detail
    I was just about to take the pattern off, when i thought of the bird i did with the burned in detail......of course i tried.

    Left the pattern on and burned the lines, through the paper and the packing tape. Had fan blowing smoke away. Took a while tried different approaches to burning. I sanded off most of my "burn blotchs"

    I was getting pretty disapointed, didnt look good at all, but i kept going, then said yuk.... enough of this.

    Finished it off with a coat of tung oil. Brought it into the house and showed it to the boss. She put in in a window and to my supprise it didnt look that bad.

    The further away you get the better it looks ...

    It now hanging over the window in the "3 season room" she likes it.

    gonna try this one again ......pete

      hay Pete. looks like you worked you rump off on this one. and it all tured out just fine. I was wondering. what wood did you use on this one. looks kinda hard. have you tried some of the easyer woods?? softer so to speek. walnut or redheart. birch. sometimes it is such a great exsperiance to try differant woods. can make your scrolling a great exsperiance. you don't have to buy a whole board. just a little piece to play with.. I bought some little pieces from barry, from alaska. and it was so worth it. for i had the oppertunity to try some other woods. the little box i got from him was jamed packed full of pieces. that if I would have bought them from some wood shop i would have paid so much more , for just one piece. not trying to sell you on anything here. but there are resorces here in the group. ok maybe off topic.

                I've had many 'Lemonade" projects that came out great in the end. I have flooring clients that are the same way. Check out the project in the middle and don't wait for the final product. Great cutting and keep it up!

                  Nice I like the dark lines that you burned.
                  If you want lager and uniform veining use one of the Spiral blades.

                    Rolf, I think he had better stay away from the lager while veining. Otherwise the veins may not be too uniform, including his own veins.
