  • And now for something completely different...

    This prehistoric Pterandon is comin' in for a landing so gangway! LOL.

    Cut this one today for my son from a pattern in the book Make Your Own Model Dinosaurs from Fox Chapel Publishing. Great pattern and looks awesome hanging from the ceiling. Wing span over 3 feet when done.

    I really enjoyed cutting it.

    Wow, that is different. Who is that suppose to look like? It's cool and a little scary. It's going to be quite the conversation piece each time someone walks into the room for the first time. What is it cut out of?

      Hey Mike, I thought you would recognize that it was a good semblance of myself. LOL.

      I used a lot of the odds and ends 1/4 birch ply I had in the workshop that was not suitable for portraits to cut this one. The book has many nice patterns and is a big hit with the kids. You can even scale the patterns and make them "human size" ... very cool.

      I said to my Son, "It's not going to freak you out when you go to bed is it?" He kinda paused, glanced up at it and hesitatingly said, "Naw." I hope it doesn't becuase then I'd have to take it down and fix up the holes.

        Hey Kerry, great job. Definitely a little different from portraits. Steve

          Hey I like that, Kerry. I take it the pieces slot together do they?

          Have you done anything else from that book?

            Yeah, the pieces slot together. I also did the T-Rex one when the pattern was published in Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts...that was what prompted me to buy the book.

            Here is the picture of that one. It was quite a bit smaller and cut from 1/8 inch ply.

                It's a fun project and an awsome desk ornament or a gift to a kid. Before you cut the pattern test the slot sizes for the wood you are using by cutting a few scrap pieces until you get them to fit snug...i.e. if you cut the size of the slot on the pattern the slots may be loose.

                    Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                    Betty, I enlarged the pattern by 30% to fit on 10" square stock....

                    Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                    will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
