    What's everyone working on? I'm working on a fairy box based on Sue Chrestensen's design and Lora S. Irish's pattern. I'll try to snap some photos tonight of that...but I'd love to see some photos of what everyone else is working on!

    Show off some of the things that are not done! Lets see some works in progress. Sometimes that helps us beginners more than a completed project!

    I'm waiting on a new clamp for my P-20, it went hey wire yesterday, one month old.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

      Funny you should mention fairies. I am working on a couple using acrylic. Still experimenting though. I cut one from black plastic and it looks like a photographic negative--think I will try white. The ones I am doing, however, have what some call "classic nudity" and may not be acceptable for show in this forum.

        I'm insulating and cladding my new workshop before the onset of winter, so I can't do much scrolling right now. It's ever so frustrating because most of the time I'm simply lugging pieces of machinery from one place to another in order to gain access to walls.

        There are definite symptoms of scrollsaw withdrawal being experienced. At least I can look forward to a happy winter of scrolling in the warmth. In the meantime, I'm waiting to visit a woodworking show in October so that I can buy an acrylic lacquer to finish something I'm making from maple offcuts:


        PS Bad luck, Bob. Let's hope the saw gets fixed soon.

        PPS Never mind finding the fox - can anyone spot the chihuahua on this thread? Little Remy wasn't happy that I'd invaded his garden for the photograph so he ran as far away as possible.

          Well I don't have any pictures to post of my work in progress but I'm gearing up my Christmas projects. Some ornament sets to give to the fam, a snowman scene for the wifey, and santa's workshop scenes for some more of the fam. Didn't get anything done over the weekend though. Now that my wife's feeling better we had ourselves a weekend getaway for the first time in 2 years. That's better than scrolling.

            No pic's, but I've been very busy. We are trying to get ready for a table/booth at the Prayer Clinic in Va. So I'm cutting now, and going to 'finish' them all at the same time.

            -Ten items from the "Words of Faith in Wood" book. (all Double Stack cut)

            -The Lord is my Shepherd, desk set. ( 2 )

            -Praying Hands Desk set w/clock, pen & cardholder. (5)

            -Aromatic Cedar cross & praying hands wall mounts (8)

            -Jesus Praying Portrait (2)

            -In God We Trust, children Praying USA Flag in background. (2)

            -In God We Trust, Ribbon (5)

            -Let Freedom Ring, Ribbon (5)

            -NPC (National Prayer Clinic) Logo Red Arcylic Magnets (50)

            -NPC 35 Year Anniversary Ornaments (25)

            And a few other items if I get time.... little less than 2 weeks to go.

            Oh, and I've been working on throwing together a 'Pay Box." Made with Maple (sides) with bookend matched Walnut Burl Lid.

              The fun never ends

              Well I can't compete with Grizz

              I have a dome clock I started several years ago, I got put off because of my wood choice but someday....
              A birth announcement plaque, a mechanical perpetual calendar, a pocket sundial, a scrollers aid, a microscope made from disposable camera lenses, and a quantity of great blue heron plaques. As for tools I am building a treadle saw and a small lathe.

              In the pattern department I am working on some padlocks, and combination locks, a noah's ark, a whole new scroll design for the contest , a cathedral, and a marble machine.

              In my spare time I am working on a cure for apathy but no one really cares about that

                Wow, I'd like to see the padlocks and especially the combination locks. Sounds like fun.

                P.S. I can't keep up with me either

                  I've been insanely busy having just had my 2 best fairs ever in back-to-back weeks. I'm scrambling trying to replenish my depleted stock. Last night I cut a new (for me) Tambour clock to add to my selection of clocks. In the past week, I've cut 13 ornaments (2 - 4 of each), 6 clocks, 20 portraits and frames and several puzzles. Hopefully I'll be able to start on the Williamsburg clock this week or next. I have another fair this weekend as well. As far as custom orders, I have a 3'6" X 5'6" display case and (2) 7 foot signs to do (neither of these have been started). I usually don't have in-progress pictures due to the fact that when I go down to my workshop, I typically stay until whatever it is I'm working on is finished.

                    I forgot to add, I'm designing 2 unique jewelry boxes for my nieces as well, one around horse theme and one around a dolphin theme.

                      Fretwork Fantasy Butterfly

                      Hi Bob,

                      I got a good laugh out of the project you are working on.... I didn't know the pattern was available yet!

                      Here is something that is just been completed, but will be modified some - the fretwork version of the Fantasy Butterfly (some might recognize it from the segmented version in the latest issue of SSW)

                          MS sent it to me early so I could cut it for my wife's birthday (Sept. 13) but I screwed up my first version (I cut it with a #7 blade after reducing the pattern slightly) and couldn't get it I started the segmentation over. Segmentation is a little tougher than I imagined <grin>.

                          Nice job on the butterfly!

                          I've got a few patterns here in the office I'm thinking about starting...some of John Nelson's restored patterns...a cut here, and a cut there. Plus I'm taking over getting our shop here at the office into shape...

                              Hi Carl,

                              Could you elaborate about these two intriquing projects?

                                First, let me say those are beautiful! Second, I can tell you that on the Facebook laser forums those people have been hunting for sources on cutting and charcuterie boards to laser engrave various personalizations onto. Some are willing to pay for quality and the finished pieces show it. Others...

                                A custom order for the "Wedding Rings" designer unknown. I used 1/2" solid Cherry and cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1 and #3 MGT blades. After sanding with a Mac Mop sprayed with 2 coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Gloss sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

                                If you are talking about their microlux, that is the same as the little proxxon saw, and it is the absolute worse scrollsaw I've ever used. They also have a 16" (the saw rebranded a thousand times) which is also a distant second in the running for worst designed saws ever.
