  • 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'.

            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.

                  Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                  Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                  Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
