  • Rhode Island Tru-Quarter™

    Not sure how many of you know that my other hobby is making fountain pens and rollerballs, but I cut out the state quarters and cast them in a resin to create these unique one-of-a-kind gifts! So i thought i would share the Rhode Island State quarter. However, this isnt just a regular thickness quarter that i cut out, it has been shaved down about a third the thickness of a normal quarter and then cut out using my dremel 1680 scroll saw. C & C welcome!

    Wonderful work!
    OK - how do you shave down the quarter before you scroll it?

      Why do you have to shave them down? Full size you can mtg them for a chain or key chain. Awful thin to cut and not bend.

        the shaving process is kept under wraps, thank you for the compliment though!

        Jim , I have to shave them thin because i am working within a certain tollerance of thickness, then once i am done cutting them out, they are bent around a tube and cast in resin. Feel free to check out my website to see how the pens look, it might make more sense

          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...
