  • The pattern, the saw, and the beer

    I started the day with an Ed Hardy pattern, a scroll saw and a 12 pack of beer.

    here is where i am as of now.

    Now I just need to paint them all and reassemble.

    OMIGOSH! What a splendid project - I can't imagine how much TIME that has to take!

      The cutting takes a couple sessions of an hour or two each.

      its the sorting the pieces, sanding and painting that is time consuming and a bit boring.

      I just finished all that and now am just waiting for the stuff to dry so i can reassemble it all. Funny thing that there will always be a piece or two painted the wrong color or on the wrong side or something like that. Then I have to paint just those tiny pieces which will take another day to dry. The worst thing that happens is the cat will knock everything over or the wind will blow everything over then i have about 100 pieces all over the place.

        I haven't looked very closely at your other post but how do you hide the pilot holes?

          I only use a #71 drill bit or smaller so that helps. You can still see some of them but nit much avoiding that. On this project I tried something a bit different where i put the pilot holes completely in the black border figuring it would get painted black anyway.

          This worked alot better then my old technique of putting them as close to the line as i could get.

          The majority of this one was done with a 3/0 metal blade and a #73 bit. That was for the tinier areas.

          For the bigger areas it was a 2/0 and #71 bit.

                            Nice job on an interesting project. The detail is amazing and only another scroller would notice the tiny starter holes. I also agree with Mike that beer(or any alcohol for that matter) is not a good lubricant for power tools even if it is a good lubricant for people.

                              Nice idea. The painting is awesome. Just imagine the project if you drank Yeungling Black & Tan.

                                I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.

                                Fix a 10 year old bug that didn't allow Scrollmania to move to different machines.

                                Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

                                Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

                                Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version

                                I can definitely see in your Heron that...

                                Still no news as to when elderly folk will get their shots here in Mexico. I tuned in to the Monday morning government bulletin this morning only to find out that the Health Secretary who normally gives these bulletins was absent. He was admitted...
