  • Charlie's Fish

    Spent the afternoon trying to get myself closer to "trained termite" standard ...

    Great pattern, Charlie, and it was fun to cut if a little nerve-racking in a couple of places. A slightly warped bit of ply didn't help!

    5/32 in Baltic Birch - cut with #1 FD-SR blades - only 2 for all of it!

    There's just under 200 cuts if my counting is right ....

          Very "clean" and nicely done Ian! I like how you placed the pattern as well.

              Ian you did a great job cutting that out.
              Do you sell the things that you make?

                    Thanks for the compliments folks.

                    Jeff, yes I'm going to frame it at some point ...

                    Bob - no I'm not selling stuff at the moment, but hoping to later in the year.

                    Robert, not sure how long it took - lots of breaks to stop me going crosseyed ..lol I would guess around 4 - 41/2 hours total ..

                    Sharon - glad you like the duck ....

                            Thanks Daryl. I think you're right what you said in another post - we must have similar tastes in patterns ...lol

                              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?
