  • Got Wood?

    Someone said that they like pictures of projects so here is my 3rd project that I have finished. I wish I had started this hobby years ago. But a thing called work would have gotten in the way. The pattern was in the March 2010 CWC mag. The pattern is by Bob Valle. I made it out of oak with a stained backer board. Any and all pointers would be helpfull. Thanks

    I like how it turned out and the grain of the wood really adds to the rustic look. My only suggestion is to practice using a smaller entry hole and hiding your entry holes for your veining...

        I see what you mean about the entry holes. The pattern showed a "tear drop" hole going down to a veining line. This shows up on the picture as a bigger hole than what looks like you would need. Not being thin skined but just telling why the holes are the size they are. I realy do like help to make things better!

          I think the holes look fine. Some patterns are made this way to camoflage entry holes, making them part of the cutting pattern. Sometimes I think even tiny entry holes look like............entry holes...........and nothing hides them. These holes really don't look that bad. Maybe part of the wood pattern.

                    I like that track man. Actually quite a few things could be done with that. Thank you for showing that to us.

                      Looks good. What are you going to do with it. Hang it in your shop, on the wall inside, a gift or for sale?

                        very cute, I have that pattern as well, but have not gotten to it yet, as I too have that work problem that always gets in the way. so just weekends in the shop for me.

                          Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                          I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                          I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                          They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                          The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
