  • Flag and Bevels

    Since Canada Day is right around the corner, I was playing with our flag. I quickly drew up this pattern and cut it using bevels. I couldn't help but think how cool the American flag would look with all the stars and strips.

    Anyone up to the challenge?

    Take care

    That flag is very cool. I was actually talking to my boss on Wed. about him drawing me a flag so I could cut it out and send it in as a quilt tile. He is a designer of machinery and quite the artist but he was having a problem drawing the maple leaf. Have you made a tile yet, I think that would be a great one to represent us Canadian Scrollers.
    Just a thought

            Tony - I have a question. There are three different levels to your flag and nthe maple leaf transitions from the lowest level to the highest. In what sequence did you cut to get a good tight fit on the stem of the leaf between the middle and the bottom level? Does that make sense?

            Remember you only really need 2 tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the Duct Tape

              Stars and Stripes

              Ok Dale.... lol, Lets see what you can do with the American Flag! I figure with all those stars and stripes, you could make it a real awesome piece.

              I used the American Flag as a box top, cut out the stars and strips and it dawned on me then that it would be SO cool all bevelled. The challenge is all in the points to the stars, atleast it would be for me.

                Hmmm. I'll try to explain

                The Canadian Flag was cut partially in bevels, partially in segmentation. The appearance of three levels comes from the bevel being pushed down somewhat at one end and raised to the full extent the bevel would allow. Then glued in place.

                I tend to play around with stuff like this, never really knowing how it will turn out. This simple idea worked out well, and overall I was pleased with it. Could I do the exact same thing again - ah, I highly doubt it. Guess it all comes from playing.

                Hope that helped.

                  American Flag

                  Here is a intarsia flag. Got the pattern from another Wood Magizine.

                  I have it attached to the side of my Motorhome. Needless to say it was a lot of fun cutting out the 50 stars.

                  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.

                    One of the nicest American Flag patterns I can recall seeing.

                        Man, both of these are very kewl! I guess after looking at these there's an advantage to being French. That's the flag I'd be willing to cut out, LOL.

                          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                          Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
