  • The Sleigh is finished

    Here is pictures of the Sleigh I just finished. It was designed by the late great Pat Speilman from the book "Scroll Saw Fretwork Patterns". I made two, one for my wife and one for our daugher-in-law for Christmas. I used BBP and #5 reverse FD blades.

    Tell me what you think.

        Ah, yea, the finish

        Ah, yea, the finish. Minwax Water-based Rosewood and then sprayed with Deft gloss finish. Sorry about that.

          Bill, I think they look terrific. I have looked at that pattern 100 times, wondering if I have the patience to cut it out.
          Great job
          PS I too love that Pattern Book

            That just does not look like plywood, and the fretwork is far too detailed for a #5 blade.

            I'm impressed !

            There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                Thanks so much

                Thanks for the praise. I did enjoy doing the Sleigh, I really like Pat's patterns.

                No Gill, it really was a #5 blade the Sleigh is almost 11" long, 7" high at the back and 5" wide. So it is rather large.

                As far as making ply looking this good, Sawduster, all you have to do is to do it. No problem.

                Thanks, again.

                  Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
