  • Modeling and my scrollsaw

    Here are a few pics of a Dory I scratch built with the aid of my scroll saw, a little over 100 hours to finish this one. Its built at a 1"-1' scale and is 17" long.

    I'm afraid however that my model ship building has pretty much come to a end since being bitten by the scroll saw bug. Funny I bought my scroll saw to aid in my model building. Go figure. Oh, well I'm having way to much fun with my saw to care.

    Hey Bill--That's neat. I have built a few "plank on frame" models in my time. I have one in the closet (the "Wasa") that I am trying to find the time to complete. What a lot of various talents we have on this forum.

      That is so cool Bill __I wish I was smart enough to do the scale thingy-- But dumb as I am I have to have exact directions or a pattern- then I still mess it up --lol
      P.S. I just got plans on a toy train to build with a lot of cars I think that will be on my next project I am going to try -- I am about tired of just doing fretwork so I am going back to building and sawing for a while.. It still all ties in together but You can only do so many fretworks until you start to go crazy AND SEE PEOPLE MOWING THEIR YARD IN THE NUDE---

        Love the model work Bill.

        I would love to see more people do that.
        The scroll saw is one of the most versatile tools.
        I don't think there is a project I wouldnt tackle, with the right blade

          I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.
