  • 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.

                    Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                    Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
