  • I'm just a sawer of a rock and roll band.

    I finished cutting the first of many Steve Good's stickman (people?) patterns.

    I cut this out of 1/4" alder and there is no stain or finish yet. I think I will wait till I do more and finish them all together. I did not stack cut these, but I plan to on others I may give away.

    BTW, 5 points to anyone who tells me the title reference above and the music group!

    The Beatles....or the Monkees! Absolutely great. I could see these selling really quickly at local musical instrument stores or events. Crud....I just dated myself

      Excellently done Karl. There was a band back in the 70's and 80's called Styx. Thanks for sharing these with us.

        Song by the Moody Blues called, "I'm Just a Singer (in a Rock & Roll Band)." Back in the early 70's, I believe.

          They definitely look like fun. Is Alder a hard wood?

            Karl, those look like fun. Easy to cut?

              That's right - Moody Blues.

              Rolf - Alder is not a hard wood as far as I'm concerned. I'd say around pine's density, but straighter grain.

              Denny - Yes they were easy to cut especially since they were not stacked.

                Hey Karl - This is my kind of scrolling! Fun looking and very attractive figures with personality.
                Were these your own design or is there a pattern that can be purchased

                As for the title - I came to late to the show...

                One of the first 10 vinyl records I bought was the Moody Blues first album, Days of Future Past, released in 1967 when I was 17 years old, with the iconic track 'Nights in White Satin' . I'd just left school and had a little spare cash to spend at the end of each week and over the next 5 years I bought all of their albums up to Seventh Sojourn in 1972 on which the track your title parodies was present. I then drifted away from them for a good while but have recently started playing some of my favorites tracks again.

                A really great group!

                  Those are neat. There are all kinds of stick men. You could populate a whole town with them.

                    Jim,

                    The patterns are Steve Good's patterns. He has now done 13 patterns with one being a chess set and board which he sells on an honor system for $5. The rest are free on his site. Here is the link for his catalog: http://www.stevedgood.com/catalog/index.php

                    As for the Moody Blues I just saw them in February for the first and probably last time. I have enjoyed their music for a number of years which started when I was in college from 79 - 84.

                      Thanks Karl for the link. I should have guess they were from Steve. I used to get regular updates of his posts but have been out of touch for a long time.

                      I'll definitely be looking at these!

                        Very nice Karl. I love all the stickmen patterns Steve is populating the world with. My kitchen cabinets are Alder wood. It is a beautiful wood when finished. Have not tried cutting any of it yet though. Although I did pickup a small piece a week or so ago to try out. Thanks for sharing.

                          These are too cute. I'll have to get the patterns to make a couple of sets for musician friends. Thanks for posting.

                            Moody Blues. Boy, does that bring back some memories. Saw them in the mid-70's. Was about 20 years old I think. Was impressed by the symphonic orchestra that accompanied them, and also by the way they dressed. A kind of tuxedo or something like that. Gonna have to look up some of their stuff on Amazon Prime tomorrow at work.
