  • 3 word arts projects

    I started these three days ago, took off New Years Day and completed them today.
    The Hope Springs Eternal (7 1/2 x 9) pattern is by Paul Boer and Joe Hoksbergen from the the May 2011 issue of CWWC. It is cut in 3/8 maple with a #2 ST blade.

    The Living Well (3 1/2 x 9)and Curmudgeons (3 1/2 x 11) are original designs and both are cut in walnut scraps I had left over from other projects; 7/8 thick for the Living Well and 1 1/8 thick for the Curmudgeons. I cut them both with a #7 ST blade. I created them in Print Shop and used Tribune at 160 points set to bold.
    I think that I would add a diagonal brace from the A and the O of also to the M and the E of curmudgeons to strengthen it if I cut it again.
    If anyone wants the patterns I can scan them into a form that I can post.

    As usual, all constructive comments and criticisms that improve my scrolling skills, are greatly appreciated.

        George, sweet, I like the designs, I like the thoughts behind them and they were all very tidy cuts.

        I'm sure the patterns would be very welcome if you have the time to put them up.
        Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

            patterns for word art

            Thanks for the nice comments folks. Here are the patterns for curmudgeons and living well. The only way I know to post them is as jpg thumbnails. I would suggest saving them as downloads and then importing them into a photo editor and enlarging them to any size you want. As I said originally, I think that adding a brace from the A and the O of also to the M and the E of curmudgeons would make it more stable.

            I will also try to post them in the new patterns forum.

                  Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                  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...
