  • Vertical name wall hangings

    Hello all, I got an order about a month ago, for a name wall hanging but my customer wanted it to be vertical instead of horizonal. I never would have thought to make the name plates this way but so far I have sold 6 name plates. These are the first 3 I made. Since then I make a small cut to seperate the letters, as opposed to a straight line down on the left side. Just a different "angle" on some of the word art so many of us like to scroll. Thanks.

      Good job Mark, funny I'd never thought of doing them that way either.

      What font is that?

        I have to agree. Never crossed my mind...They look nice this way.

                Thanks everyone, but like I said, it was my customers idea not mine. I wish I could "think outside the box" more. The one I am doing now is "chloe". The H and the L present a slight problem so the only thing I could do is have the L go into the center of the H alittle furthur than normal.

                  Are you cutting the letters out and arranging them or using a font that does that?
                  OR perhaps just changing the line spacing?

                    Hi Stephen, It is 1 solid piece of wood. I use print shop 20 to do all my word art. The problem with vertical letters is, I have to make a new "writing box" for each letter as opposed to each word/sentence. I then line them up vertically with the same program. I have used the same font because straight lines are much easier than the fancy swirled fonts. I hope this helps.

                      I like those, they look good. I made a pattern similar to that as a request for the Welsh Welcome Croeso it is a little different, but the same idea. Here is the link A Welsh welcome • Scroll Saw Village

                            Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                            I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                            Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                            That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                            Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
