  • Great Grizzly Finished

    I finished my second project. Jeff Zaffino's Great Grizzly. I haven't put any finish on it yet. This one took a little over 21 hours so far. This time I used thinner plywood, about 5mm, than the Tightwire project and it came out much better.

    Wow!

    Bob,

    That is awesome work.

    What size is the plaque?
    And what blade did you use?
    What starting hole size?

    Nice job,

      It's 14" X 11" and I used a FD New Spiral, 2/0 with a 0.027, #68, pilot. I really like the 2/0 spiral. It did take 25 saw blades to finish though.

          Very nice work! I recently did a Gary Browning pattern of a windmill in 11 x 17...it was very challenging! So I really appreciate the work that you put into this one!

            MinotBob, nice job. I did Jeff's "Engine 86" with a straight blade. Jeff's pictures are very challanging. How do you finish your work? Mick. P-20

              Very Very Nice !!

              Having cut one of Jeff Zuffinos pictures I can really appreciate the effort it took to do the Grizzly. The end result is certainly worth it. Did you Stack cut it? I cut 3 at a time, one for me one as a gift and the other I will sell.

              It certainly is a test of patience.
              Beautiful.

                Totally terrific, Bob!
                5mm plywood - hmmm... that's less than 1/4" and more than 1/8" -- is it BB or something like oak? The grain seems to be pretty fine - a beautiful choice, whatever. Now, what is your next project?

                  Boy you don't hold back do you Bob? Doing one of Jeff's patterns for a 2nd project shows no fear! Great job!

                  I love those spiral blades! One more question for you, do you remember how many starter holes it took?

                      Lol, While reading this, Bills post got me to chuckle! I now know Im not the only one that likes to count the holes drilled in projects as I cut them ! The grizzly looks great !!!!! And for a second project, something of that caliber is unheard of!!! This should be inspiration to anyone just getting started into scrolling, to show that you can accomplish anything you set out to do!! Great job on a fine project! Dale

                        As near as I can tell the wood is possibly Mahagony. I still have go around to have it translated into English. I didn't stack it. After I did the Tightwire Cowboy I wasn't sure what quality of plywood I was using. It turned out to be mych better. I have several finish's available. I'm going to do some test pieces tonight.

                          I drilled 583 holes and had a timer running when I was working, 21:20 hours so far. Actually these are good starter patterns. Who's going to tell you that you can't follow a line?

                                What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                                Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                                New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                                At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                                I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
