  • 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

          Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

          For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

          A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
