  • 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.

    I can't begin to count how many compound cut pieces I have have made and given away to the kids at at our wood working shows. I call compound cutting the scrollers Crack habit. Egrett painted 3.jpg

      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.

                        How many times will I make a cut for inlay, then forget to reset the blade angle to 90 degrees? UGH!

                        Rolf, on your second picture did you resize O Holy Night or was that the angle of the camera? How did you carve the bowl behind it? A little birdie told me I was getting the rest of what I need so I can do bowl and spoon carving. Actually, I told the bird what I needed/wanted. Your work is amazing.
