  • Art Deco Patterns, Acrylic and wood

    Let me ask the question, then I will go on about the why.

    Has anyone seen a pattern for an Art Deco style mantel, or shelf, clock?

    I am aware that scroll saw work and Art Deco style don't exactly go togeather. In fact I always associated Art Deco with brass, chrome, and bakelite (sp?), stone, and such.

    However, here is my thought thread:
    - I got asked, in a social situation, about an art deco, rococo style, or tambour style clock for a shelf (think of a mantel without a fireplace) which I was thinking maybe as a bandsaw project
    http://www.blueheronwoods.com/DecoLamClocks.htm
    http://www.libertys.com/libert05.htm
    However:
    - then I saw a post about plastic mirror behind a rose cutout by JT
    - then at Wildwood Designs and at Sloan's workshop I was looking at the options for acrylic plastics
    - then at Rich Hutchenson's web site, on the clock patterns, pattern book #206 I saw his pattern #2071 (not exactly deco, but could be modified to be close enough)
    - Which made me think of using the white marble acrylic sold at Sloan's for Rick's pattern, except the acrylic sheet is too thin (1/8 inch)
    - Which got me thinking --
    Maybe some one else has tried to come up with an Art Deco mantel clock in the past.

    So I am asking the question.

    To answer your question, No.

    However.... to take it a little farther....

    First, my mind is a blank and I can't think of what the name of the material is called - but they make countertops out of it. It looks like stone, marble, etc. and comes in a variety of colors. It is thicker than the 1/8" acrylic you mentioned. And it has been used in scroll saw projects - you just need a special blade, sanding equipment, and glue.

    So, if you come up with the art deco clock pattern in wood, you could substitute this material instead. Is that what you are looking for???

    If no-one can come up with the name of the product, I will ask my husband when he gets back tonight - he will know.

      I believe it's called Corian (also think it's trademarked).

          I didn't use a special blade when I cut corian (or nairoc as it is sometimes called, corian spelled backwards), I just used a #5 Reverse Tooth blade, flying dutchman ofcourse, and had no problems whatsoever.

            Thanks for the Corian suggestion.

            I guess no one at this forum has seen plans for an Art Deco style clock.

            Thanks to all who looked around.

              The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

              When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
              Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

              Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
              by mccrookston
              First time posting.
              I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
              I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
              Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
              Any ideas on what might be causing...

              That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
