  • 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

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

            I'm impressed !

                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.

                  I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                  These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
