  • Loon

    A project finished Monday. This is a Steve Good pattern. I used 1/4" solid Walnut and backed with 3/8" Baltic Birch plywood. I used 3/8" so that it would hold the hanger without going through the wood. Cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using #1R MGT blades on all interior cuts and #3R on the exterior cuts. The finish is one coat spray Shellac as a sanding sealer. Then two coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Satin, sanding in between coats. I should have used 1/8" so that the white would show through the Walnut. 150 holes. Comments welcome.

            Looks great! I just love those small holes that take a couple of seconds to cut and longer to tread the blade through. Just curious, did you top feed at all?

                Very attractive piece. How big is the finished piece overall?

                    Great piece. Reminds me of a fishing trip to MN years ago. The muskie weren't biting, but saw plenty of loons and a few bald eagles.

                    When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
                    Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                      Thanks Jim. We never caught Muskies, but many hammer handle Northern Pike

                        Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                        • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                        Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
