  • "Wolf at Night"

    This is a just completed Christmas present titled "Wolf at Night" It is about 10 by 6 inches and the cutting was done with spiral blades except around the inside of the frame.

    I have heard lots of folks say they use only spiral blades for big items. This is the backside of the cut before I cut out the edge. You can see the way the blades can change direction and the complexity of the cut. It would be a lot harder to try this with a flat blade.

    There are pieces of scotch tape holding in some of the close cuts Using Sprial blades just takes practice. I prefer them over flat blades anymore for fretwork and I do use both on almost every project. Enjoy, I did.

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

      Great job and pattern Chuck. I cut this same pattern sometime ago and have been amazed at the different responses to it, the main one being the amount of people who can not see the wolf, until I point it out to them, and there was one person who never could see it!!

        Very nice work Chuck....even if you did use spirals
        (Just kidding folks).
        I think I have that pattern around somewhere, it might look neat with a mirror backer.
        Thanks for sharing your work with us.

          Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
          That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

          If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

          The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

          You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
