  • Feeling a bit Froggy

    Evelyn said I been it bit froggy in the last few day's picking on her and trying to play the heavy which by the way I dont do very well I cant keep a stright face. So since she said I was froggy I though I should try to make one. This is "Fats Frog" from Diana book. It's cut from scrap popular I'll put a coat or two of Shellac in it but I wont paint it, that one area I'm not very good it. Any and all comments are welcome just dont get too froggy

    Looks great Dan. I bet you could turn that into a coin bank fairly easily. Thanks for sharing it with us.

      Thanks DW. It's a bit small for a coin bank it was cut from a 1/1/2" square blank. I guess you could enlarge the pattern and cut in from thicker stock on a band saw.

        Well, um, on your third picture, back view, a bit of pyrography or carving could give some interesting detail.

        Real cute, Dan, and I don't think the paint would add a lot.

            Nice job, Dan. I think like Carole, only some pyrography giving some details or some carving with a small "dremel" sander.

              Thanks Carole, Jerry and Simon. Your right Jerry I'm hopping out to the lilly pad later for sometime on the saw. Carole and Simon what kind of detail would you add to the back of the little guy. I do have a pyrography iron that I could use.

                Um, well, I was thinking of, shall we say, a natural division on the frog's posterior. Not sure if Simon's mind runs on the same track as mine--he may have something a little more polite in mind.

                  Oh, ... my idea is only to draw a line to show more (to mark / to draw) the thigh of the frog... Carole, you have a lot of experience and I haven't 2 years of scrollsawing. Also, in France, nobody know what is scrollsaw...only some old people who say... that's old, that's smell dust... Ok, that why I paint or make some pyrography or carving on my scroll saw.

                      Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                      We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                      He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                      What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
