  • 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.

                          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                          I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                          First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
