  • Geese, Eh!

    Latest cutting - this one slowed down the production line a little ..lol

    It's Steve's (StevieGwood) pattern, with a few tweaks from me. 2x6mm Finnish Birch. #1FD SR blade. There were one or two "oops!" cutting it but none that are too visible I hope ...

    Maybe Andy D can count the holes - I gave up after losing track 3 times ..l

    Oh and the second version is Steve's idea of WV geese ....

    Thanks for the pattern, Steve.

      I don't know if that second picture is authentic; can't see the NRA badges.

      Great job, Ian!

          The ruby throated goose is rare indeed.
          They are so hard to catch because their wings beat at 53 stokes a second.
          The only goose that can fly backwards.
          Quite a remarkable bird indeed.

                    Ian, nice cuttings, but they are looking South. I am sick of winter, can you turn them around to head North?

                      Turn your monitor round Mick then they'll face north -

                        Ian, great job on the cutting. I thought it may take awhile but well worth the wait very nice. I still like my idea of the redneck geese.LOL . Steve

                          Lookin' might fine there Ian. Since you prodded me ... LOL ... I ran it through the process and came up with 293 cuts. I wouldn't advertise it at that though since I'm pretty sure I might have missed a couple or combined a few areas converting it from the pic to black and white. I think I cleaned up most of the wood grain but you never know. It's safe to say it's over 280 cuts though. After running it through all this I must comment that the pattern you had to work with was exceptionally well done and I'm sure it was a treat to cut. Well done Steve!!!! and your cutting did him proud I'm sure Ian.

                            Thanks for the compliments everyone.

                            Andy - thanks for the cut count - hey that's a personal record..lol

                            Steve - the pattern was fine to cut, though one or two of the lower parts of the feathers were pretty close together - at one point I was thinking I must be a masochist to have added more feathers to that left hand duck ...

                            Ive no idea how long it took to cut - lots of stops and starts - it got a bit delayed mainly because I'd run out of thin drill bits until the mail came last Friday .. an 1/8th drill bit that I had would definitely have been too big for some of those holes ...

                              Those are more than likely "Blair Mountain Geese"...but Steve will probably be the only member here that understands the association. Has to do with the origin of the term "Redneck".
                              If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                                Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                                I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                                I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                                They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                                The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
