  • My first posted piece

    Just thought I would poste my first piece that challenged me and made me learn some new words. You know the ones that come out like *$#**. But I pulled through and came out with this piece. Any and all comments and opinions would be greatly appreciated for this new scroller.

      Hi Sherri, and welcome to the forum.
      First I would like to say, that I rarely critique anyones work, and I think you have done a fine job of cutting this pattern. There is one area that I think requires some rework and then I think it will be a very nice piece. If you click on the pdf file I've loaded here you will see a section I have highlighted yellow. I would remove that section completely, it is far too thick and distracts from the overall beauty of the piece. You will not jeopardize the integrity of the piece by removing that section.

          Well done Sherri! I wish my first projects looked half as good.

            Hi Sherri, nice scrolling i would'nt even attempt something like that yet so well done to you. However i have to agree with Marsha, when i first looked i had a double take to find the tail so "chop it off" girl. lol

              Thanks for all the great feedback everyone!
              Marsha, I was thinking that piece needed to be removed but needed some encouragement to do it.

                          I agree completely with Marsha's comments about that "second tail" but otherwise that is really nicely done Sherri. There's some delicate looking cutting there..

                            Thanks for all the great feedback! The extra tail is gone! I really am a new scroller with only a few simple christmas decorations before this piece. I am now on the hunt for my next project, hopefully just as challenging. Will poste it once it is done.

                              Well you've got a real talent for it then, Sherri. I think it's a great piece of cutting.

                                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
