  • Another one from the Holiday Issue

    This was a nice quick and enjoyable project . I'm really liking the holiday issue of SSWC, there's still a few more that I want to knock out.
    I cut this out of pine and aspen with green poplar and redheart for the accents (it's the woods I had in stock that fit the pattern).
    Bob, I'm not sure what could be confusing in the instructions, I whipped this out without a problem.

      Hi Kevin, Beautiful job. My hubby really loves it. I wish it was in fretwork as well. Maybe if I send an email to Paul Meisel, he could change the pattern for me.
      Thanks for sharing

        That's a lovely piece, Kevin. Any tips on cutting ovals?

        My copy of the magazine must still be dodging u-boats.

          Hehehe, that struck my funny bone Gill. As far as cutting ovals, the best advise I ever read was to keep moving and cut in one continuous motion. Having a disc sander helps too
          Thanks for the kind words as well.

            Great work Kevin

            Bill;
            Dang this cold weather!
            Just cold? We are getting a big dump of snow right now. The snow plough just came up our road with chains on and I could hardly see his headlights in a white out.

              I like that alot, I have to take a closer look at the holiday issue.
              I like your choice of woods.
              Did you glue all the pieces on before finishing?

                Thanks Bill and Rolf.
                Rolf, I stained the backer before gluing the pieces on (with Aleene's Tacky Glue). I then sprayed it with Deft clear lacquer. I've never had a problem gluing to finished work with aleene's although I'm sure there are other methods that work as well.

                    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...
