  • 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.

                  Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                  I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                  This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                  I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                  Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                  How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                  I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                  First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
