  • Fretwork Violin

    The pattern is by Sue Mey and found in SWWC Fall 2019. I enlarged the pattern by 8% to fit 12" stock. I used 1/2" Walnut and backed with 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood. I used FD UR #3 blades and finished with two coats of spray Polyurethane Clear Satin.

    You did that pattern justice, I may have to cut this one.
    The test cut was was done by my friend Joe , one of our club members and excellent scroller.

      Thanks Rolf. It was a fairly easy cut, except the were several very small holes.

        Thanks for showing yours Denny. It looks very nice, especially with the walnut. This is another one I copied from the magazine but that is as far as I have gotten with it so far.

                  As Jim said it is project specific. Normally I prefer thicker before I like the extra depth. Thicker is less prone to breakage. The only real advantage to thinner is allows for stack cutting.

                  Now from perspective of using what an author says in an article I normally use what I have...

                  Really neat piece. Hope you signed and dated it.
                  I have a table my grandfather made as a school woodshop project--according to family lore--and I wish there was something from him on the table.

                  Sort of like telling us you're getting something and making US wait!
                  Wish I was closer to give you a hand.

                  Really glad to hear you got your "jumper cables" installed. Your cardiologist sounds like a great physician.
                  Do what he says for a while. That storm mess will still be there.

                  It would depend on the project. I have laminated at times to add thickness and I have scaled patterns to fig a piece of stock, but going from a prescribed thick stock to thinner (on hand wood) has never slowed me down.
