  • Opinions For Fretwork Pattern

    Hi Everyone, I was wonder what you would consider to be the ultimate fretwork pattern for the scrollsaw? What all would be in it animals, houses, farms, flags etc... ? What would be your opinions to create the ultimate pattern. What size would it have to be? I was just thinking of something differant with differant elements all tied together in on pattern. I am interested in what you all come up with for ideas. Steve

    Jeff Zaffino's Peacock is the most difficult pattern I've ever seen.

      Tough to say. I really like the Amiens Clock, which I have but just haven't had time to get started on the 3877 cuts yet. I have a couple of castle patterns of my own with quite a few cuts that I haven't had time to get to. these will be cut at 16 X 24. I also have the Last Supper intarsia pattern from Bruce Worthington which has 800 pieces, one of these days I'll free up enough time to work on these.
      I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think there is one ultimate pattern, there's some that stand above the others in that genre, but each has its own challenges and merits.

        Hi, maybe I was not clear. I am not speaking of a pattern that is already made and on the market or the degree of dificulty with the amount of holes. I was more interested in what intigrating differant elements into one pattern. We have all seen a deer or a flag or a polka dotted cat( Kevin) hehe. I am thinking more towards putting several things into one pattern but some how connecting one to another. Dumb example- a car leaving the city going past a farm in the country up into the mountains or traveling down to a light house near the shore. I hope the idea came through. Steve

          How about a polka-dotted cat sitting on a deer who has a flag in his mouth walking up a path to a lighthouse ?

            Okay, Robert said he couldn't resist so neither can I.

            Stevie - You mentioned size consideration. Hows about whatever you decide on scroll it in a 1" x 1" sq. 1/16" Finnish Ply. Now that would be the ultimate project!!??

              I am currently working on a pattern that is kind of along the idea of what you are talking about. I am trying to tell kind of a story about my father by using a composite of different pictures. I don't know how well it will work, but I will post it when I do get done. It may take awhile before I get it done because I want it to be just right.

                That is a tough question.The peacock Grizz posted is a nice pattern, and although it looks difficult, I wouldnt say it was the most difficult pattern there is, at least not to me. A pattern with a lot of repeated geometric shapes all small and close to each other poses a huge amount of difficulty in making them all uniform, at least for me.The hardest pattern I have ever cut out was a Barry Basket clock with a whole bunch of 1/4th inch squares, to me, that was the hardest thing to do.I guess for me, the ultimate scrollsawing pattern is one that no matter how long it took me to cut, I enjoy every second of the project, from planning to finishing. the topic of it would have to be just right, and the cutting challenging, yet fun enough to not be overpowering to the mind.I know that didnt give you a hint of an answer, but I do think everyone will have their own ultimate in their mind,and no two will be alike.

                    Hey all, I seen one the other day on one of the scroll saw sights and only hope to gain that experience and patience. The overall Saw work was of a wolf head but the cut outs were actually various differnt pictures of wolves. That must of been difficult to arrange the smaller pictures of the wolves in a fashion so the big picture of the wolf would stand out noticably.

                      The pattern that you are refering to would'nt be this one would it? This I did some time back and it was an interesting cutting and putting something together like this is similar to what I am meaning here. Steve

                        yep that was the pattern. The one I seen was done by sawdust granny. Thats a nice one. How long does it take to do that one? Was the pattern in a pattern book?

                        Have you checked out the art work here http://www.finescrollsaw.com/examples.htm

                        I would think these would be the ultimate. Hurts my brain just thinking about it

                          Hi all,

                          I just want to answer in public something I am asked by e-mail once and again. The patterns of the Milan Cathedral are not for sale in my web yet. I plan to create new plans for the cathedral some time in the near future but since I do not do this for money and my main goal is to make perfect patterns or at least try it, this may take some time, I guess several months. When the patterns are finished it will be very easy for any scroller to complete the project, this is a promise. Meanwhile those looking for challenges can try some of the patterns I already have, some of them are really elaborate.

                          Pedro.
