  • Something for myself

    I decided last night that since I've spent the last few months making things for other folks either for gifts or from orders I received I would take some time and make something for myself.

    Carl, does this look familiar? I wanted to add to my ever growing polar bear collection.

    I haven't put a finish or a background on it. I do have some fun foam in a light blue that really set it off, so I may just clear it as is and then put the background in. I don't think I'm going to frame it, I kind of like it without the frame but that could change once I get a finish on it.

    That sends shivers up my spine Way cool
    I was thinking of sending you one with an iceberg as a background something like the Sorel boots logo.

    I just never got around to doing it....always the best intentions...never the best timing.

    You have done a great job on it. The blue will really give it a kick!

          Thanks, folks

          Carl actually sent this to me a few weeks ago. It's from a company logo. I only used the polar bear portion. It was quite easy to do and probably took all of 10 minutes.

              I think I'll keep this also

              I too seem to give everything away that I cut out, but I saw this pattern in one of the lastest editions to the Scroll Saw Magazine and I am staring to try and cut it you can see it is still a works in progress

                Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
