  • Canadian Scrollers

    are there any other scrollers from the maritimes here? i'm curious as to where you buy your wood. no one around here seems to supply wood in 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 thickness and i don't have a bandsaw or planer. i'm getting tired of working with baltic birch ply. thanks.

        Nice picture

        That would make an awesome pattern if you would allow one of us to cut it

            Not sure if that is a camera effect but check the sky out. That is awesome.

              You can get hobby boards at most lumer retailers, but you can pay for a planer real fast buying it as hobby boards.

              PS: You can get a good planer now for $300 & up. A 1/4" x 6" x 3 or 4 ' runs about $14 Cdn. as an oak horry board.

                that was the first time i've ever been to peggys cove for a sunset. i've lived here for all of my 36 years and go down there at least 2x a year but always by day. i'll never go there by day again. it was so beautiful there my wife cried.
                here's another pic. i was actually leaving when i saw that view so i quicky stopped the car and snapped the above pic.

                  I will say this if you are a portrait designer you can be in heaven. I bet there are some fantastic views that can be captured. Wouldn't be bad to be a photographer also or a painter.

                          with scenery like that it's easy, just point and click.

                            Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

                            There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

                            As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

                            I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
