  • Rest In Peace Diana Thompson

    I just saw a post on Facebook from Diana’s husband, Robert. The queen of compound cutting is now making sawdust in heaven. Prayers for Robert and the rest of the family.

    Maybe we should all post a picture of one of her projects we have made as a way to honor her memory.

      Oh, so sad. I made many of her patterns, especially the Miniature Birdhouse Ornaments. Here is her Dogwood Box

          I did a few birds years ago and Denny got me going on them again.
          I will miss her patterns, but I have her Christmas ornament book to start on.
          I posted these a couple of months ago, but here they are again as a tribute to a great artist.

                  I made 150 of those angels during the height of COVID. My woodworking group made various small crosses and angels which were given out to nurses in area hospitals.

                    Diana was truly a fine pattern maker. Compound scrolling is one of my favorite things to cut. I give lessons on compound cutting and I always start with Diana's mini birdhouse. People are amazed when the little house or bird pops out.

                    My favorite memory is cutting child awareness angels. The local cancer support center asked if I had an ornament to make for child cancer awareness month. I used Diana's angel and with the help of some club members make over 150 for each family in our area. I have since done many painted pink for breast cancer.

                    We will miss her, but her patterns live on.

                      So sad to hear this. I loved making the bird houses.

                        I did not read the fine print, actually not that fine. when I went to buy my new compressor for 25% off (not). That would have been nice, but I am still happy with my purchase. Although I have not used it yet as my garage is rather cold.

                        Some manufacturers will restrict items for resale to a certain price or basement price. And in some cases will only sell with the agreement of no discounts allowed.

                        And then there is margin, the retailer needs to make a certain amount of money on all sales.​

                        Have you had big temperature swings in the shop? My first thought is something binding. I fix all of my own stuff and don't hesitate to take things apart to try and isolate where the issue is.
                        That said at only two years old I would contact Denny and see if he can direct you to a Pegas tech center....

                        Welcome. Could be a number of things. I would call Denny at Art Crafters of Dayton or Ray at Seyco. Both numbers can be found on the internet.

                        I still use my factory dust collector on my pre Chinese Ex21. No, not for everything that I cut but primarily for compound cutting where we generate a lot of sawdust. I did enhance my dust collector by replacing the membrane wit a piece made on a 3D printer. The enhancements gives a bit of extra...
