  • finished Beagle

    This is the finished beagle that I did for our neighbor I tried different stains to see what effect I could get and am quite pleased, the ears are dark walnut the face is oak and natural, I will attach a dark brown backing soon as its dry and present it to her tomorrow, I scrolled it for 3/4" poplar

    Nice Job, Daryl.
    I might have tried to make the nose (what there is of it) darker, but I'll bet it;ll be a winner with your lucky neighbor.

      I go by Trout because my name is also Darrell...

          Nice work, how did you keep the stain from bleeding to the different sections.
          That looks like a Judy Gale fine line design.

            Great job Daryl!
            The way you stained that piece is awesome.
            That really shows creativity.
            I like the eyes too, Beagles always have such sad looking eyes

            That is a piece anyone would love to have.

              Nicely done, Daryl but I'm wondering how you would hang something like this on a wall. I recently acquired the dog breed book by Judy Gale but didn't realize the portraits were all with a round frame. I'm going to eliminate the circular portions and cut them like all my portraits.

                  Mike on mine I mount a sawtooth hanger on the forehead instead of the ring,
                  Rolf I downloaded the pattern from Scrollsaws free download section from one of the back issues there are several free patterns there and to stop the bleeding I took a tip from again the Scrollsaw tips section and used a wood burning tip to outline the areas where the stains would touch

                  thanks everyone for your words of incouragement and comments and Sheltie I took your tip and will black the nose out thanks

                        Very nice work Daryl! I like how you used the stains to accentuate the features.

                              Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                              How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                              The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                              I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                              Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                              If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                              Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.

                              Thank you all for the info. Sounds like itโ€™s talent or practice issue not my saws. Wife already gave permission to buy a new one. I will wait tho
