  • 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.

          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.

                              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.

                              He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                              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...
