  • Crow and Raven Patterns

    I posted to the beginners board so I wanted to post here also. I am looking for patterns for crows and or ravens. If you know of a good site for thses or birds in general I would appreciate the info! I am new to scrolling and I really enjoy this great resource for info on my latest hobby.

    Re: Crow and Raven Patterns

    When I'm looking for pictures of something to carve I do a Google search under images

    Crows about 160K http://images.google.com/images?q=crow&hl=en

    Ravens about 177K http://images.google.com/images?svnu...mp;btnG=Search

      Re: Crow and Raven Patterns

      Thanks for replying! I have a lot of pictures and drawings of crows but how do I make those into a scroll saw pattern? Knowing what to take out and leave in is where I have a problem. I have looked for a program made for this but have not found anything yet. Any tips you could give will be appreciated.

        If you are looking to make a portrait, check out Gary Browning's book Scroll Saw Portraits (click on the Fox Chapel link in my signature) He has a chapter on turning a photograph into a pattern for a scroll saw portrail...I'll see if I can find any other sources...

            Has anyone on here ever done the change over from a picture to a scroll saw pattern? Is it difficult? And did it turn out right? thanks!

              I've seen it done, but haven't actually done it my self. It's all about determining negative space and shadows. Gary gives a in-depth description in his book. He has his own website and is very active on-line; We've got a list of all our author's websites at http://www.foxchapelpublishing.com/c...ur_authors.cfm

              If I were you, I'd pick up the book and then you have Gary to go back to if you have any questions!

                I do it all the time with my carvings. If the pictue is the size I want I use carbon paper and trace it on to the stock, if not, I hand draw it to the size I want. I few times I have enlarged and reduced the size with my computer, but I hate taking my shoes off, going back into the house to mess with pictures.

                With scrolling it should be quite easy, you're working 2D to 2D, with carving you go from 2D to 3D.

                  Yup - t'aint hard ... it's a lot harder to explain than to do ... just try it a time or two on something simple, you'll surprise yourself!

                      by Rolf
                      I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

                      Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

                      Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...

                      by Jim McDonald
                      Sometime back, there was some discussion about darkening oak. I have used the search and found something about fuming with ammonia, but I think there was another method using vinegar.
                      I have a suspicion it may have been lost in the software change.
                      Any guidance appreciated.
