  • I'm a bit rusty with my saw

    I haven't done much scrolling in a few years, but this November I fired up the old RBI and got back into working the wood. I made 200 little 3D reindeer and a few plaques. I'm a bit rusty with the saw, but it's all coming back to me as I sit at the saw. Here are a few of my little projects that I did:

    one of my plaques:

    3 deer in the woods:

        and last but not least Grandma and I sitting enjoying an evening:

        I hope that you enjoyed the photos and that I didn't bore you to death. I wasn't sure where to post this, so I hope it's alright where it is.

                  Good work !

                  I'm pleased you posted your pictures in a thread because I'm the (lazy) sort who'd rather have them drawn to my attention than have to go trawling through the gallery to find 'em .

                        If that's rusty, then could send me some of that rust? Those projects were very good, thanks for sharing, and welcome to the forum.

                          Thanks everyone for boosting my confidence! My wife and all the members of my family, plus my Best Friend are always telling me that I am too critical of my work. Now I guess I can definitely believe them.

                                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                                What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                                Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                                I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

                                Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
