  • 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.

                              I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.

I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

                              What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...
