  • Oval flower cuttings

    These cuttings were done in solid oak and mahogany with matching oval frames. The frames were also made by me. One of my specialties. The cuttings were done a while back but thought you may be interested in seeing them. Frame size is 5x7 and backing of various colors done in suede matboard and normal matboard for other colors.

        Those are absolutely beautiful. Really like them all, and the frames are also outstanding. Great work, thanks for sharing. If you can share how the frames are make that would we super, they are great.

          Very nice job!!! I agree...the frames are great! Did you use a router on the edges or just free sanding? They would make great designs for box lids.

          Thanx for posting and keep up the great work!

            You did a very nice job with the whole lot of them. I like to make frames for all my pieces, most are square though. I was wondering how you attached them to the oval piece of art. The finish is fantastic. Thanks for showing them.

              Those are just lovely, especially as a group, and the frames set them off beautifully. Thanks for sharing.

                  Thank you for your kind words. To answer a few questions. The frames are cut from a template on a pin router. Which is a router suspended overhead on an arm and follows a pin on the table below. The template has a grouve cut in it for the pin to follow. The hardest part is to make the template. It has to be perfect. You can then make as many as you want all the same. I have templates for most standard sizes of ovals.The shaping is done with an under table router and the picture is held in by a rabbet cut in the backw the same as a rectangle frame.I hope that answers your questions. Thanks again for the kind words.

                    Very clever the way you make those oval frames and obviously something to be proud of. I don't know if you attend craft fairs but if you do I would imagine you would sell a lot of those.

                        Sweeeeet looking projects Collins, and I agree they look awesome grouped together.
                        About your description on making the frames with a pin router setup.....your 'splanation is right on, but my eyeballs are starving. Any chance of a photo?

                          In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                          Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                          The outside
                          of the extension is almost finished apart...

                          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...
