  • Thank you Marilyn Carmin

    For years I admired the work of Marilyn Carmin, and was drawn to her designs. I probably purchased every, okay, maybe not every one of her wildlife patterns - but I do have a library of them.

    Marilyn has been a regular in the magazines for sometime, and she has come up with some of the most original composites of wildlife fretwork. I consider her "often imitated, never duplicated".

    Marilyn has this "My Spirit Soars" in the current issue of CWC . I simply couldn't resist this one - it looks like her older work which has inspired me over the years. This version in cut from 1" clear pine, and 1" cedar.

    Thank you Marilyn, for your fine design(s) and for creating the way only you can.

      That looks really nicely done, Toni. I've never cut any of Marilyn's patterns but I've admired them in the magazines - they're always a little different ..

      Does she have a website BTW?

        Thanks for your kind comments.

        Some time back, I believe she had a site called "Heartland Creations" but I don't believe she has it anymore. (I understand why) Perhaps Bob or the folks here at Fox would know more - how to get her patterns.

        Take care

          I really like that one. How large is it and how thick is the wood? However, I wish you would have posted it with a larger file size so I could see it a little larger. Very nice, though.

              This one is about 24" with the wing span, and cut out of 1" thick pine. The circle is 1" thick cedar. I simply loved the grain of the wood.

                  That is a nice piece of cedar. I figured it to be walnut. Is the posted photo an accurate rendition of the cedar?

                    Nice cutting of a very nice pattern. I hope if I scroll long enough some of the talent like you and MC will wear off on me.

                      LOL, an accurate rendition???? I have the giggles on that now... if you mean is there any stain or colour applied to the cedar, nope. Just cut, sanded and then a couple coats of semi gloss varathane.

                      Thanks for all the kind comments on the scrolling.... this one was a lot of fun and a challenge for me. I don't use spirals, and the saw throat was only 16", this bird's wingspan is about 24".

                      Take care

                        Very nice Toni. That one caught my eye as well and will eventually find it's way into my cut pile. Sue's Leopard is up first though.

                            That's awesome! That design jumped out at me from the magazine too, I'm just waiting until I get a little more brave.

                              Great job cutting Toni! My husband saw that one and decided that it was the next one for me to cut! He loves that kind of work and so do I! I just hope I can do it justice like you did!

                                He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                                Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                                I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                                You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
