  • Well...some of my latest projects...all were scrolled

    I broke my trusty Dremel 1830. (Ham-handed noob!)They sent me the parts, and I'm happy to report it is up and running again!

    Since then, here are a couple of knives and sheaths I made for myself, and my Grandson's 12th birthday. Scrollsawed handles, Natch! Desert Ironwood and Reconstituted Turquoise for the handle of the one with the light sheath, and Desert Ironwood, cocobolo end cap, plus some other stuff for my personal (dark sheath) knife; It is Stingray hide laminated to 6 oz. leather, hand stitched. Sore fingers!

    Santa head and Gryffindor Snowman I entered in our local competition. Scrollsawed and carved. Really surprised I did as well as I did!

    Dang,this uploading pictures is not nearly as hard as it used to be! I'm going to have to do more of it Thanks, whoever got it done!

        Nice work on the knife handles, and the ornaments.
        It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

        It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.

            all for your kind words.

            No, I designed a scrolled stand, but ran out of time. I bought them at some craft store. I don't think they are particularly good-looking, but necessity never made a good bargain!

            I may try to make a couple of stands for next year's competition...if I can finish my Totem Pole, the Dancing Santa from WCI, and 9 Christmas Ornaments for the grandkds...and the angel for my first great-grandchild. I just hope my saw doesn't break again! If it does, I may have to spend the stash that I'm saving for a new camera.

            Decisions, decisions! Live Long...and scrollsaw!

                    Thanks; They were Denny blades, bought from Little Shavers in Washington State. I understand Denny has been bought out, but may still offer the blades, and Warren offers some blades that look like they will do the job.

                          Right now I live in the greater Houston area, which is by Texas standards 'next door', meaning you only have to drive 4 hours, 2 of them being the Houston commute. But yea, I miss the old missions. That's why I made this project.

                          Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                          How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                          The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                          I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                          Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                          If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. 😁

                          Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
