  • We Love You Dad plaque

    Here's my latest cutting: 3/4" red oak w/ clear lacquer coating over Honey Oak Stain. Piece is about 12" long, cap letters are 1.5" high, using Cooper Black font. It's a birthday present for my Father-in-Law who turns 87 Jan 31.

          Daryl, I used Microsoft Powerpoint , Word Art and Shapes. I could have used Paintshop, too, but had trouble finding a heart shape.

            Nice lettering. I think cutting good looking letters is one of the harder things to do with a scroll saw.

                It is so cute (Christmas deer)

                "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
