  • Prise 2 (Take 2)

    Hi,

    Here is my second piece.
    Yea, it's for the wife again, or so she claimed: "It's got Dolphins, it's mine!"

    Guess I knew that from the start.

    Dolphin Clock: I got the pattern on the net (http://www.msnusers.com/AbsolutelyFr...ni%20clock.pdf) I modified and added the base (cut freehand) and kept the "wave" theme in it.

    The finish is 2 coats of Tried & True Danish Oil, followed by 3-4 coats of Gloss DEFT Urethane.

    I told my wife I could sand/smooth it out more, but she said: "No! it looks hand-crafted now, it won't if you make it perfect (as if I could )"

    Hope you enjoy my inexperience, huh, I mean new experience (of course)

    Regards,
    Marcel

              Dale,
              That one should be in the Pattern Vault in the msn group Absolutely Free Scrollsaw Patterns. Marcel had the link in his message.

                    for only your second piece it looks excellent. the curve cutting will come with time, i've been at it for 2 years now and still have trouble making a smooth curve.

                        Thank-you all for the encouragements.

                        I'm starting to see why this is addictive: The simple stuff done by a beginner like me yields immediate results. Instant gratification! (or deception, depending )

                        It's the finishing that takes the longest so far. I think I'll start using lacquer again: 15 min between coats with no sanding means waiting a lot less longer

                        My piece for the quilt is almost done, I'll be posting that soon ( If my daughter can bring me back my camera she borrowed for the week ( A boy she met on the net visiting her from France for the week. He's a nice, good looking kid )

                        Regards,

                          Marcel. looks like we have one more thing in common. I just get in a hurry to get it done at the last. . and slop on the finish. my hubby tells me so. I guess I like to cut. not finish. he says let him do it. think i will. I really hate that part. don't know why. just do. does anyone have a reason why that is. just wont to go on to the next thing. he hates cutting. I hate finishing. is it the sanding, or is it the laquering. ???????? I like the sanding. thats no probleam. is it becouse i hate the laquering. becouse i don't understand it . ??????? its a mistery. the finish is the probley most empotant part. that makes it look like a masterpiece. But I just hate it. ok come back on this one. what do you like to do the most. and do you fallow through. your freind Evie

                            I too get frustrated with finishing.

                            Maybe I should use Finnish Birch

                              Hi Evie,

                              I don't like sanding probably because I don't have enough experience and I find I always take too much off, I tend to overdo it, although I am getting better at it.

                              What I hate the most is waiting for the < fill in with the finish of choice > to dry and to cure. I feel blocked, and my present set-up is not really letting me start something else in the meantime (I'm working on fixing that soon)

                              What I like the most is seeing the final result of it all coming together, the pride of having created something with my hands, but then I also feel a disapointment because it's over and there is no more anticipating what it will look like: it's there.

                              So I'm happy to see it, and sad that it's done. Guess that's why I'm the kind of person that's eternally unsatisfied (...but my therapist says I'm making progress )

                              I have to admit that so far I'm proud of the different things I have done. Now if I can get my act together and build my website, I'll be able to share a little more than the few scrollsaw projects.

                              Finnish Birch Carl? Sounds like a solution to a-ply

                              Regards,
                              Marcel

                                Hey Quartz - thats great scrolling and carving work which the LED lighting sets off a treat - or was that a trick?

                                Love it!
