  • Does anyone know of any segmentation forums?

    I just got the Spielman & Droge book, Creative Scroll Saw Segmentation. I am hyped. I really enjoy scrolling portraits etc. but this looks like a lot of fun too with out having to spend a fortune on intarsia hardwoods. SSW is obviously the best overall scrolling forum but am I off base by asking for information about a segmentation forum?

    Harris;
    PM me and I will send a link back to you just in case it is contrary to site rules to post it here.

      Come on Harris...Neal Moore, Toni Burghout, and Sue Chrestensen don't give you enough segmentation <grin>....

      If you want, I can start a section devoted entirely to segmentation and Intarsia...but I've been trying to keep the sections to a minimum...

        Bob -- I'm not Harris but I would enjoy the extra section on segmentation and intarsia- I think its beautiful but I don't have the nerve to try it - I think it would be great to have a chance to learn something new--( and I promise I won't give advice there )

          C'mon Gang--
          There is a lot of discussion about segmentation/intarsia here already. Take a look at the gallery categories. Harris, I have had some of Droge's books for quite awhile and have done several of his patterns (some are in my gallery). There is also a beautiful book (may be out of print by now) by Kerry Shirts on scrollsaw art (segmentation in this case). Has a picture of a zebra on the cover and i have seen it still for sale in a couple places. Neal Moore is in the process of getting his own book published with animal patterns. Several of us on this forum do more segmentation than anything else. Let's discuss it. Where do you want to start?

            Segmentation

            Harrisg....Just start a thread here under "General Scroll Saw". Several of us are segmentation "nuts" and will be more than happy to join in. I would love to see even more interest in that aspect of scrolling and will be happy to share anything and everything I've learned about it.
            If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

              On Segmentation

              You have to know this thread made me smile.

              I agree with Mooner, Kerry Shirts book on segmentation is an inspiration to anyone who is interested in the art. He has some beautiful work there, easy to follow and well, overall a highly recommended book in my humble opinion.

              There is much to be learned about segmentation here on the SSW forum, and there are those of us who work at it pretty consistently. Definately just ask a question, and those who can will step up to help. Neal is coming out with his own book on the art and would be a good place to start (he's always helpful) and of course, there are others such as Mooner, who if you look in his gallery has plenty of experience.

              Sharon, why don't you "have the nerve to try it"?

              If you like the style, please don't shy away from trying it. As for segmentation, you may very well surprise yourself. Again, there are some very pleasant and well intentioned folks here willing to help. If you prefer, feel free to PM or email any questions, Sue and/or I will do what we can to help you.

                Thank you Tony for your kindness -- I think segmentation and intarsha work is drop dead geourgous but I think my scrolling isn't quiet accurate enough yet to try to make something that fits so good-- but I did have the idea of making sanding mops for my dremel and if everything goes as planed I will get me a sander sometime next month- I just got a new 10 Band saw a few nights ago and have resawn enough old scrap 2x4s that I think my wood proplem won't be as bad as it was .. never knew you can cut something so thin-- and straight-- yippeeeee!!!!! I' like a kid with a new toy -- Oh wait- I am a kid with a new toy ...And Tony I have a few of your patterns I am anxious to try when I do so you can be sure I will yell out .

                  I'm pretty excited about getting into segmentation and when I feel I can handle that, I'll try intarsia. It seems like the nice thing about segmentation is that since you're cutting it out of one piece of wood, if you're a little off line in your cutting, it's OK because it'll still fit together and you'll probably the only one who knows (providing you didn't cut the head off. But hey, just make the head a segment It seems that in intarsia, since you're cutting different pieces from different woods, there's a lot more cutting and fitting. Come on Sharon give it a try. With that new band saw, your scrolling talents and your Dremel, you're a shoe in for the winning piece at the next contest.

                  And yes, I'd love to see a separate section for this.

                    Harris,
                    I'm also pretty interested in it - but I'm wondering if a whole section is necessary - I just usually read all the "new posts" every time I log on. So-- any thread about segmentation would come up any time there was any "action" on it - wouldn't it? And, of course, techniques and finishing would have so much in common with other sorts of scrolling and intarsia, would it need to be completely separate? Just asking - I really don't know enough about it to be firm on this - .
                    Thanks, Sandy

                      I'm like you Sandy-- I don't know enough yet but boy do I want to learn.. I read the article in this month SSW and I am all excited about learning-before I didn't even think I could,,now maybe ,,who knows?
                      Harris I getting excited for you on learning yourself- Personally I think in your few months you have made leaps and bounds in scrolling-- Gold star for you.

                        Sharon, I hope you do try segmentation... I think you will surprise yourself. Get creative, and if you wander away from the line, so be it. Segmentation is more forgiving than some of the other styles in that aspect. When it comes to cutting a backer for the project, which is your most thin piece, take your time, slow your speed.

                        As for equipment for segmentation, hmmm lets see, my shop has a saw, a drill press with a drum and mop sander attachement, a drum sander and a rotary tool. Not elaborate by any means, but then again, I am a simple housewife.

                          Hi
                          How fun to see the excitment building about segmentation projects..I'm totally 'hooked' on it for lots of reasons and can't wait to see pics of what's being made! I think the key is to simply go for it and have fun!! Stains and dyes can match some of the exotic woods and can give a piece some real drama, the pieces will pretty much fit together regardless of your level of expertise even if you go away from the lines a bit... so don't be hesitant to jump in and do a project!!
                          Just a bit about what I use: I have 4 tools which is literally all that I use for my projects..the saw of course, a belt sander, a mop sander on my drill press, and the hand held rotary tool for detailing every now and then.. I typically use a #5R blade which reduces the hand sanding necessary..and anything that helps reduce the amount of sanding is top on my list.
                          If there's anything I can do to help with any segementation project..give a holler..or a quiet message I'd be more then glad to help out in any way that I can

                            Getting back to my question <Grin>

                            How many people want a separate section for segmentation?

                              Hey Bob-- guess we don't need one do we?--Toni, Sue thanks loads all I need is a drum sander then-I have everthing else I can get attachments for my drill press for that and I can make a mop ( I think for my rotory tool ( which is used almost as much as my saw) I saw the link from Grizz on a neat orbital drum sander with several different size drums for $139.. Think I am going to try to swing that first of the month .. then I'll be all set...COOOOOOL
