  • Bee Happy picture finished

    I have to thank Bubba-n-Tenn for the pattern for this picture. He posted it a few weeks ago and since my granddaughters elementary school, DBeeO, uses a Bee Theme for their motto, T-shirts, and mascot, it was a perfect pattern to cut for them both.

    I stack cut 2 with #2 skip tooth blade into 1/8" maple ply and glued the finished picture to a painted 1/16 bb ply backer. The picture itself is 9" x 12". The frame is shop made from 1 1/8" wide by 3/4" thick oak and stained with a combination of red oak and dark walnut. The entire project has several coats of varnish.

    As usual, all comments and criticisms that make me a better scroller are greatly appreciated.

    Lovely piece sawdustus, cant wait to get a few projects under my belt (develop my scrollsaw muscle memory and motor control hehe, even manage a straight line and a nice fluid curve) and start to tackle some nice flatwork like that.

          Very nice George...isn't it fun to make projects for your Grandkids. I remember making bunk beds, regular beds, dressers, etc. for my kids where they were young...about 40 odd years ago. I even sewed up the little mattress and pillows for them...haven't thought about for years. Thanks for bringing back good memories for me

            I think it turned out to be a great looking project. Thanks for the plug on my pattern, too.

              Your welcome Bubba, and thanks for all the nice comments folks. This one was fun, not really difficult, and easy to paint. It probably took me as long to make the frames as it did to cut the pattern.

                  Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                  Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                  My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                  I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                  Was it a good idea.....?...

                  Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                  The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                  I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
