  • My first fretwork

    Here is a picture of my first fretwork. The pattern is from Patrick Spielman's book "Scroll Saw Fretwork Patterns" - Sterling Publishing Co.

    I bought this book when I first started sawing and think the Late Mr. Spielman is the best.

    The flash took a way from the finish abit, tho.

    Very nice Bill. Yes, I have to agree that Pat was great help to many scrollers. I was very lucky to have met him in person a few times.

        I wish my first fretwork had been to that standard!

          Well it looks pretty good to me! It is interesting to see what people choose as their first scrolling project.

          How do you feel your scrolling has progressed since this piece Bill?

              Thanks

              Thanks for the kind words. I, of course, hesitated to post this being that you are your own worst critic.

              Yes I have improved especially staying on the lines and curves. I got a lot of help and encouragement from this forum.

              Yea, the book is real good. And you are right it is hard to chouse what's next. I think I will do the sleigh next on page 50. I, also, made a name plaque for my granddaughter from the gay nineties letters on page 103.

              Thanks again.

                I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
