  • scroll saw patterns from a picture

    I am fairly new to scroll sawing, and have been asked by a client to scroll a Vought 4-7E Corsair II airplane. I have never done this before so I was hoping that someone on here has. I have attached the picture that I am supposed to scroll out. If some one could please give me some ideas or tips on how to do this I would greatly appreciate it.

    You're full of it! Now whether that is a compliment or not depends on what you're full of

    There are several MSN free pattern sites, which do require you to join but may very well already have the pattern your looking for, or one of the members could help you out.

      kmonkey, not supposed to post websites on here. Send me a PM and I can tell you of a website to go to. This guy is very good at what he does and can make you a pattern from a picture. He does charge for his time though. Just click on my name in the upper left corner to send me a PM if you are interested.

        You may have problems getting a decent pattern from that image. I'd ask if another image of the same aircraft would suffice and go find one at the sites recommended.

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          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...
