  • My 2nd and 3rd projects

    Hi all,

    While not up to the level of the experts (or even intermediates), I feel pretty good about my next two projects.

    The hands are BB stack cut with 2 pieces of 1/4" and 1 piece 1/8". The 1/4" are in a frame for the organist and pianist at our church. I played with stained glass behind the 1/8" and really like it. About that time my better half said her mother would really like it. So I am left with nothing. Guess I will have to do another.

    The cross is stacked with 3/8" walnut and 1/4" BB. All I have left is cutting the perimeter. I am a little leary as I think it will be fragile.

    Both projects are in the 10 in high range.

    Anyways, just wanted to let you know us beginners are doing a few things and learning a lot from this board.

      You're brave. If I'd been the organist or pianist and you'd given me a picture of two hands clasped together, I'd have wondered if you were trying to tell me something about my musicianship!

      Seriously, they're good projects and nicely cut. You should be proud of your progress over such a short timescale.

        The "Praying Hands of an Apostle" is a very loved painting in my area of the country (the Midwest). My mother-in-law has several in her house.

            Hi Steve

            I was only joking about the musicians - honest !

            I think you'll find the "Praying Hands" picture was originally produced by Albrecht Durer. Far from being the hands of an apostle, I believe they were his brothers hands. Still, they've inspired many devout Christians over the centuries so there must be something apostolic in their nature .

                Looks Good!

                Steve-

                Lookin' good. I like the cross, as I am a fan of fretwork. The vanning look good as well. You shouldn't have any trouble with cutting the perimeter after cutting the inside.
                Congrats.

                What kind of saw do you use?

                  Bill,

                  I use a Hawk 20" VS. Both projects were cut with a #5 FD Skip Reverse. Both stacks were 5/8". I figured I would find the capabilities and limitations if I used only 1 blade size. I chose a #5 based on the info supplied on this message board.

                  I plan on doing some Woodimal puzzles for the grandkids (ages 2,4,5). Hopefully they will be easier than the cross. Have not done any puzzles as of yet.

                  ps. I would love to attend a scroll saw picnic next year. At least meet some fellow scrollers from my area.

                      Nice job Steve, don't worry about finishing the cross, if you do half as well as you did on the inside it will come out great.

                        Your fourth project should be the cross as an inlay.

                          Very nice work! I want to scroll a cross for my brother but haven't gotten around to it yet. Thanks for sharing and inspiring us.

                                I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                                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...
