  • 1st try at fretwork

    This is my first try at fretwork. The pattern of Frank Sinatra is from Gary Brownings portraits book.

    Thanks Gary for a great book. Now I have lots of patterns to try. I hope someday to be able to do some portraits of my grandchildren.

    This was a wonderful break from intarsia but I think I am ready to get back to it. My hat is off to all of you talented fretwork artists. Keep up the good work.

                  Nice work Tim. I noticed that the armature from the shoulders up through the face was rather thin. Did you glue this onto a backer?

                    Sorry, I meant from the face up through the hat looked rather thin.

                          Jim,

                          The project was cut from 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood. I put a felt peice behind it and than the press board of the frame. It also has glass in front so it is not as fragile as it looks.

                          I don't know if that is the right way to do it, but it seemed to worked on this one.

                          Thanks for the compliment.

                          Tim

                            That is the right way to do it. Anyway that is the way I do all mine..

                            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                              I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
