  • My Latest (This was a little easier)

    This was a pattern by my good friend Gloria Bryan (her patterns can be found in The Wooden Teddy Bear with the prefix KC). The wood was a gift from another buddy, Barry (bearfretworks) and I believe it's Sapelle (African Mahogany). I just winged it for the outside at about a 35° angle freehand.

    you did that sapele proud! Very nice Jedi, very nice!

    What did you use, if anything, for a backer?

    Just remembered that sapele was prettyy wide. what are the dimensions?

      I do like that, Kevin .

      The sapele has a very interesting grain. Have you thought of incorporating a piece into a project which features the American flag?

        Thanks Gill and Barry. Believe it or not Gill, the flag idea did cross my mind with the grain pattern in this piece.
        I just used a piece of black felt for the background Barry. It measures about 9ish" X 13ish" (how's that for precise measurements, hehehe). I have plans for the other little oddities you sent me as well, stay tuned!

                  Kevin, I love it. Someday I'm going to have to try to scroll in something besides BB ply.

                    Bill,
                    This was a very easy piece of wood to scroll. It was about 1/2" thick and I used a #3 FD-SR blade. I only used one blade on the entire cutting which took me about an hour and a half of cutting time (about 100 cuts total). It cuts like butter. It's comparable to regular mahogany (sometimes referred to as "genuine mahogany").
