  • Tug The Drafthorse

    Last night as I was working on Hank the mule I had Tugs picture hanging up on the wall so I could start to get a feel for him and a game plan..
    I know Toni and Sue likes things a little different so I hope they don't mind if I'm leaning toward a more traditional look..

    Being that this is my first attempt at a segmentation project I'm tiring to stay within those guide lines..
    since this will be cut out of one piece of wood I had my wife enlarge the pattern to fit on a 12 inch wide board.
    Paint or stain? that will all depend on the wood and when I get to that piont.

    Off to the lumber yard...

    time to start cutting...

    I found a really nice piece of 1/2 x 12 white Poplar with a very nice wood grain...I was hoping for a wood that would take to fuming, tanning and that would stain well but Poplar was the only thing I could find in that size..

      11 x 17

      I enlarged the pattern to a 11 x 17 piece of paper which will make Tug's accrual size 10 x 12..
      The bigger size looks great and will make all those small and curvy pieces much more manageable to cut...

      to bad I can't show you, you'll have to wait until Toni and Sue unveils him...

        ROFLMAO! Nice one Trout!

        Yes, we will do the grand reveil when you've completed him. I got the giggles from that last post though.

              Waiting with bated breath for the grand reveil or reviel? Is that a combination of unveiling and revealing ....?

              But when is the cutie in the bath that I have here on my computer going to be revealed, Sue and Toni?

                Oh sheesh Ian, you had me there a moment. I was puzzled.

                I looked at Sue and said "cutie in the bathtub????" and we both were caught. See we have a number of "lifeforms" and nudes designed but well, they wouldn't be appropriate for this forum. I had to think for a moment what design you were talking about.

                That "cutie in the bathtub" will be shown when you do the design I suppose.

                    116 pieces

                    It's all cut out and it only took me 3 1/2 hours total cutting time....

                      Wow, you're fast.... we are glad to hear Tug is under 4 hours cutting time. We want to keep our designs under that mark if we can.

                      Having fun Trout?

                        I've got pictures too...

                        time to go clean up all those little pieces...

                        I'm having a great time, I just wish I knew what I was doing.
                        maybe I should put Neals book on my wish list....

                        116 pieces in 3 1/2 hours and to think it took me 2 days to cut out 20 pieces for Hank the mule..

                              Didn't get any mail yet. Am I having that email problem again???? ARG.

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
