  • Some Practice

    Hello Everyone, here's a few of the things I have been working on. Its all for practice now. Any suggestions are more than welcome. The toxic one was just an experiment with some letters and the foam stuff..thinking of ways to paint it up..kinda fitting for a fourteen year old's messy room. The other ones were my more serious attempts at learning curves and angled cuts and what not..thanks for looking..

    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your post.

                Really nice work! Especially for "practice." Looks more like projects to me. Your framework on Home Sweet Home adds a nice touch. And I agree that TOXIC is "kinda fitting for a fourteen year old's messy room."

                      i like the merry christmas one too, i like to think of every piece as a practice piece for if it came out perfect every time i think i may get bored and try to find something more challenging , thats why i like scrolling always a challenge in every piece

                          Thanks Jim, I am working hard to get the hang of it. Yeah Lefty, I see what you mean, it is very challenging I just do this for fun now so its all practice, not too sure when I'll feel confident enough selling my stuff. Ah, Oily thanks, no ringer here, just a letterhead at heart and been drawing letters most of my life so the saw is weird, its like a sharpie with a blade ! Been Practicing drawing my own letters and words using some of the Speilman/Boelman/Burghout patterns as examples as how they are put together. Posting some new stuff over the next few days.

                            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                            I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                            FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                            Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                            I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
