  • Christmas Plate

    I cut this plate 2 years ago. I bought the plate and use wrapping paper for the background on the cut outs.

    Bob, I'm confused. You said you cut the plate but the plate does not look wooden by any sense of the word. Then you said you bought the plate. I really don't get it. Maybe I've been inhaling too much sawdust today.

      Excellent job, Bob. Great pattern and VERY CLEAN paint job.

      Im guessing you bought the plate blank, scrolled it, painted/finished/added the paper backing?

          Ahhhh, now I get it, I think. Looks just like porcelain to me. If these guys are right, I'm impressed.

            It's a lovely piece, Bob. Like the others, I'd love it if you could be a bit more explicit about your production techniques.

              Sorry, I didn't word that very well.
              I bought the wooden blank and did the fret work on it then painted it. Wrapping paper was used for the background on the cutouts.
              The hardest thing on this job was getting the pattern on it

                Where do you buy wooden plates?
                Nice paint work.

                  That's a very pretty piece of work Bob. I have zero patience when it comes to painting.

                    A fine job.
                    It brings three of my favorite things together.

                    Christmas, scrolling and since it is a plate....food!

                      Rolf, I get the plates at a woodworking store in Indianapolis.
                      You might look at some of the online stores. I looked in Woodcraft and didn't find anything.

                        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
