  • fretwork picture

    I was looking for fretwork pictures and I came upon this one from the SAW website.
    I first thought it was a picture of a frame containing lace.
    What a piece of work!
    Does anyone have any more info on this, It was in the 2002IL directory.

    I would like to have the pattern for that. I think it would be fun to cut.

        It's absolutely gorgeous!! I'd love to have the pattern too. I'll bet you spend half a day just drilling for the inside cuts. There must be more than a thousand.

          That is an amazing piece of fretwork. Why couldn't you just photocopy a doily and use it for a pattern. I just copied one and it turned out quite well. A little tweeking and it could easily be used for a pattern.

            A more masochistic a piece of fretwork I have not seen.

            Fabulous yes. Do I have the time? No.

            What an obvious suggestion. Photocopy a doily for a pattern.

            Maybe I should do that for our lace tablecloth.

              But would the lace tablecloth pattern fit in the throat of the saw?????? Inquiring minds need to know

                It looks like many of those "cuts" could be exactly round - so that they could be simply very accurately drilled holes of the proper size. Or are my eyes decieving me?? OK, maybe not simply...

                  I have looked at that picture a lot and each time I look I think of the macaroni art we taught our kids and that I learned in vacation bible school.. Think about all those perfectly round pieces and the shapes... looks like macaronni would work to make a pattern for the copy machine-- and you can always make the design in other fashions besides round.. then when you had your pattern made you could eat it..lol.. but it is worth a try to makSharon

                    I am so impressed with this piece, I wish I knew who did it.
                    I also love the ideas, of doilies and macaroni art.
                    I am not sure if I will ever get something like this done but I think I may just have to try.

                    I do think I need an indexing wheel for my drillpress though.

                      i think i would do it with a quater million dollar cnc mini router - lazer.maybe, i dont see how it would be possible to reposition the piece without distroying it. the connections are so fine.

                      unless its all built up and each wheel is seprate segment...

                      reminds me of the oriential cork vineer carvings with the time and effort spent.

                            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...

                            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.....
