  • Rainy day project

    We finally got some much needed rain last week,@ 10'' , so not being able to work outside I did this portait. I used F.D. new spiral blade 1 on 1/8'' B.B. plywood. I bought the frame at Hobby Lobby. Thanks for looking.

    Excellent work. Not an easy project with spiral blades as I have recently discovered. Just finished my first project with spiral blades. It's Posted in the Gallery. "Cowgirl Dreaimg" Not the best work, but in a years time, you can compare and see if I have improved. It was quiet a challenge getting the project finished with out wanting to throw it

      Bill it looks fine indeed. Thats all I use to cut my projects, FD-2/0 or FD-1 spirals. I love them, even when stack cutting they get me thru with no problems.
      Glad to hear you got some rain, now is the time to go do some fishing!!

        Thanks guys for the kind comments.
        Bishopherry:I looked at your "cowgirl dreaming" I thought it was very good work, it is hard to get use to spiral blades but you will catch on in no time.
        Bill: I think it is time to wet a hook if only I could find the time, maybe I can at least hit that little white ball.

          Very nice Bill, that was the first John Wayne I did. There have been five others since then. Every one wants a picture of the Duke.

          When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

              Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
              And on each cloud touching the body ?
              I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
