  • 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 checked out We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
