  • Military Designs

    I purchased you military scroll saw book but I have never done this type before and the Helpful Hints are not helping. Are they made up from two or three types of wood.

    Do you first have your main sheet then the rope circle gets added to it then the design.

    Please help.

    Re: Military Designs

    If your talking about the Military Plates i have made numerous of these. I mainly use one type of wood due to the way the pattern has to be cut. I've done two with different type wood. Walnut and Birch. I stack cut them and then just put the finished product together with the different wood. They are sort of tricky to cut so take your time and follow the cutting arrows on the pattern. I've also made some doing bevel cuts which really made the different levels fit snug.
    Hope this helps.

    Good luck and happy scrolling

      Anyone know where I can get a pattern for the Navy emblem without buying a whole book?

        HI-HO, I have several, icluding some big ones. Now if I can just find them..... My brother is a Captain in the Navy and I've thought about doing something for him. You can find some of them on-line on the U.S. Navy web-site, as I have, or you can hope that I can search my drive and find the ones I downloaded. I'll let you know. I did note on one official site that the Navy does not allow anyone to reproduce their emblem!

          Don't know about reproducing, but do know, many have done wood carvings, scrollsaw emblems, intarsia, marquetry you name it!! Besides us Navy people earned our emblems right! I think maybe that was intended to ward off the actual reproduction maybe in print for some ulterior motive...anyway, thats my excuse and I will stick to it LOL

            Hi-Ho, here's a navy web-site graphic of the emblem:
            http://www.chinfo.navy.mil/navpalib/...s/usn-logo.jpg

            They note the official 'Navy Seal' is not to be used by anyone, but the emblem is not restricted. I missed that distinction the first time I saw this site. I have a large, BxW paper copy of the emblem (not to be confused with the restricted seal). I could snail-mail a copy if you wish.

                Hi-Ho, send me a message with your address and I'll get one in the mail. Hopefully, you'll make one before I do and you can post a photo and give me some advice. I had an idea about a cigar humidor with the emblem carved on the lid but haven't gone anywhere with the idea yet.

                  Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                  Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                  Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
