  • gingerbread, corner trim patterns



    Hi all,

    Just new to scrollsawing and will be starting my first project next week.
    I have a DeWalt 788.
    I need to make some gingerbread corner trim for the posts on our veranda.
    I bought one to use as a sample but it`s too plane and I`m now looking for a more elaborate pattrern. Can anybody lead me in the right derection here.

    Many thanks

    John R.

      Gingerbread trim


      Thanks Smitty,

      Yes I tried that first also. Lots of sites want to sell their gingerbread trim. Challenge is finding a site that will sell you a pattern or still better find a site that will let you download trim patterns for free ( am I dreaming here?)

      But thanks again for the quick reply,

        Perhaps you might find something satisfactory if you browse through some scroll saw mags or books for candle sconces. Of course, you'd need to enlarge the patterns!

          Here is a link

          Here is a link to a Gingerbread Fretwork supplier called Empire WoodworksThey have some really nice designs there.
          I have had one of their catalogs before and the selection is awesome.
          Most of the brackets have little black and white pictures so you can compair designs.

                Wow, the US dollar must be BACK!

                I have a copy of that book from the library, and it's good, but not worth $78 in any currency!

                The patterns are quite similar to shelf patterns, like Gill pointed out.

                  LOL If that reflects the exchange rate I sure as hell won't be visting the US in the near future...

                  The only book I ever paid over 70CAD was a plant encylopedia - but then it has over 1000 pages in full colour. Only problem is that it nearly takes a forklift truck to pick up the darn thing - it definitely isn't bedtime reading unless you want to risk concussion if you drop off to sleep...

                      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...

                      I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
