  • 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.

                  After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                  At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                  I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                  Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
