  • Designers, Luthiers, and others: a suggestion

    I know we have a couple of Luthiers here and some talented designers too:

    I ran across this link for design of a guitar stand contest:

    if you scroll down to the design by Rob Weeks, then read the judges comments.

    Now scroll up to 2nd place winner Bill Grunbine.

    There must be a design that would link the two designs with a wonderful scroll saw design. The base would only need to be 1/2 inch stock. Replace the circles with Musical 1/4 notes and a Treble cleft (fancy "&".) How about a measure of music doing do-re-me... with 1/4 notes.

    As far as the neck goes, Vine and leafs fret work might go good. However, the simple austere look of the solid neck as designed by Bill Grunbine does have merit.

    Just thinking out loud.

    The guy who took first place deserves it in my opinion. It is sleek, simple, and elequent. Nice use of woods.

    I was reading the next contest and I think if I can get the cabinet I am working on completed I may give it a shot. Then again I have been trying to complete it for the entire winter and to no avail.

      Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

      The new Circular Scroll Saw Designs book form Fox Chapel
      by Tom in Ashland
      Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

      Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

      I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
