  • free hand name cut-outs

    Here are four names that I've free-handed, that is, the script is actually my own writing. I'm trying to figure out a better way to cut the lower part of letters that fall below the line. If you look at the "y" and "g" you'll see what I mean. They just don't seem to stand out very well. I cut some of these out for the kids at our Fall Festival.
    Any comments and/or suggestions are always welcome.

      Well, they told my mom I was supposed to be a girl, so I was brought home from the hospital in a dress. Maybe it rubbed off somehow. LOL
      And...hittin' old guys is a jailin' offense, so no worries.
      Thanks for the compliment on the names. You know...my real talent is copying people's signatures and cutting them out. Surprisingly I get very few requests for that.

        Hi, Bubba,
        Nice work! In the examples you show here, you could actually cut the entire
        bottom portion of the letter and it will not fall out because it is attached on
        each side by the preceeding and following letters. Maybe that would help a little
        with those particular tails on letters like 'Y' and 'G'.
        God Bless! Spirithorse

            I like using a printer, too, when I can. When I work from my trailer I have no computer, no printer, just me, some scrpa wood, a pencil, and my dad's DW788 mounted to its stand and tied down with cargo straps. It's kinda like a portable shop. I can pull it and park anywhere. Any kid can come along and want their name done so I have to be able to be Johnny-on-the-spot. It's a good attraction and an excellent way to introduce kids to the scroll saw.

                Hi Bubba, nice work. The way I get around the "tails" of letters is, I use all capital letters. I know this is not "normal" or what you are looking to do but it is the only way I know of to make all the letters even at the bottom. BTW my daughters name is Gabby and she does not notice the letters are all caps. She is just happy to have her name on some of my projects for her. Not sure if this helps.

                  Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                  Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
