  • My Latest Project (A new pattern record!)

    The spar varnish finally finished drying on this thing. This is a new personal pattern record for myself. This had a whopping 9 cuts total!
    It's cut from 1" Ash.

      Ash !

      Run out of woodworm, Kevin? Run out of BBP? Fancied giving your saw a bit of a workout on some proper hardwood?



      You won't be surprised to hear that I love this project. Is it your own design? And did you shape the board with a router (which is how I would have gone about it) or did you scroll it?

        Thanks Gill and Evie. Yep Gill, it's my own design, and no, I didn't run out of BB ply (thanks for the chuckle though). I've been trying for simpler designs to go with my slightly detailed ones, this is the first of what should be several different of this type (fairly easy) that I have in the to-be-cut pile.
        As far as the board itself, I scrolled it as I didn't have a template to use with a router. Here's my little secret for this one, I found a big pot and used the lid and just eyeballed it 'till it looked "right" and traced around the lid (don't tell my wife that I used one of her pots, LOL).
        You're welcome to the pattern if you'd like it btw.

          Another case of less is more.

          Great job.

            I'm sure I saw a pig fly past my window just now. Could it be in recognition of me asking Kevin for a copy of his pattern?

            Seriously, I think that's a mighty pattern and it reminds me so much of the Spanish Lipizaner horses.

            There's an easier way to produce the background board Kevin has cut with his scrollsaw. Just find a retailer that sells cut-outs for craftworkers to paint (they're usually available in poplar or MDF) and use them as templates in conjunction with a router. Okay, it'll cost a little for the templates, but once you've got them you've got them. Oval templates are often available from such sources, and I'm sure we all know how hard it is to scroll cut perfect ovals .
