  • 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.

              First off how thick is the board you cut?
              When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
              that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
              for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

              I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

              Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

              Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

              I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
