  • A bit of brag

    Bragging is not something I am comfortable with.
    But what the heck. My favorite project (so far) is Jeff Zaffinos "Old and New" (about 5 hours) I won a first place with it at our annual Woodworking show.
    I made the frame from Walnut wood flooring scraps and did all of the matting.
    The other picture is my favorite ornament (Volker Arnold) I was scrolling about a year when I did that on my Delta saw. The RBI makes all this stuff a lot easier.

    Rolf,
    That train one is an awesome piece of scrolling, but my favorite is the ornament. Great pattern, well cut, looks terrific. Was that pattern in SSW?

      Neither pattern was in SSW. The ornament pattern was purchased directly from Volker Arnold. You can now get it from Tom Sevy the US rep. for him.
      The Train is from Jeff.

          That was definitely worthy of a brag.

              Great job on both Rolf, and congratulations on the ribbon!
              The walnut frame is a very nice touch too! Are my eyes decieving me or is the JZ picture a little larger then 11x14?
              Nice grain pattern for the sky also.

                Thanks for all of the nice comments.

                The picture is 11x14 but the matting and larger frame makes it seem bigger.

                I didn't notice the grain until I looked at the picture, that was pure luck.

                  Rolf. they are both grand for sure. and i agree with Bill. the wood grain on the train. makes the shy look like a cloudy swerly day. the matting is subpurb, and the fraim is to dye for. not to mention, the train fretwork, is done so great. you are doing so well. good job.

                    Outstanding work Rolf ! That train is sweeeeeet! The grain almost gives the illusion of a mountain in the background, and the frame and matting is the perfect compliment ! Congratulations on the award. Well deserved I would say
                    Man, I hope I can get there one day ...top notch cutting and finishing sir !

                      Only 5 hours?

                      I'd say that was good time. and that ribbon was well deserved.


                      Congrats,

                        I like to have an idea of how long it takes me to cut something so I took an hour meter (125 V) that I was going to put on my furnace and put it in the line between my foot pedal and the saw. It runs every time I step on the pedal. I just write down the starting number.
                        It also keep a total run time for my saw this way.
