  • 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.

        You did a very nice job cutting that out.

          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.

                  Sherri. wow now that is something for a beggener. that looks great. and hard to do. I think if you can do that project. you are reddy to do most anything. I have to say, I didn't notice the piece Marsha talked about, but I have to agree. she sure has a eye don't you think. wellcome again. and can't wait to see your next project. your friend Evie

                          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.

                                I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                                Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                                Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
                                My dream was to buy a TIG so that...

                                Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.
