  • Almost a Shamrock!

    I cut this today and it was a Shamrock but as I was sanding it I broke the stem off so I just cut it off and made it a bunch of Harts. Havn't stained it or anything. It's about 1 3/4" and cut from 1/4" Poplar (because that is all I had in 1/4")

      Looks like a shamrock to me too! Of course, if you ask me in early Feb. I might see it as a bunch of hearts - lol

        Well it had a stem on it but as I was sanding it, the stem broke off so I just trimmed it a tad, next ones I beefed up the stem nd they became full shamrocks :-)

          Super glue a scrollers best friend. I carry two types in my shirt pocket. BTW if you have a leak take your shirt off slow or you will have to join the male Amazon club. Don't worry there's a bunch of us.

            I started to glue it back on but then I decided that since it was made from Poplar, I needed a stouter wood, so I cut several more with 1/4" plywood and they worked out great and are a lot stronger.

              Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

              There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

              As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

              I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

              John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

              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...
