  • "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.

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

          I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
