  • I'm Not A Carver But..............

    I have been  checking out this site and the work that some of you people have been doing and it is just fantasic. You deserve a lot of compliments for your expertise in the craft of your choice. I have little to offer on this particular board except congratulations on your carving and keep up the good work.
    I am a scroller and I participate in the Scrollsaw forum in this site . Come on over and have a peek if you like. Nice to see what other fellow woodworkers are up to.

      Hi Bill -

      Wow, your scrollwork is gorgeous!! Thanks for stopping over here to show it to us - I never think about looking through some of the other boards - and I can see that I should cause I'm missing alot of really cool stuff!!

      Thanks!

        Hmmmmm....actually, this gets me to thinking, you guys....

        Should we open up our Picturetrail site to include all genres of woodworking being addressed on these boards? We could just add a few more albums and let the other folks know about it? Whadya all think? (Or maybe they already have their own, I don't know)

          Sounds like a great idea to me, Teri, a lot of us here do different types of work, anyway!

            Hey Bill, I agree that your work is fantastic! One way you might be able to help us out is to give us directions on how you are uploading the pic right into this message board. I saw your pic on your board, and at times we like to show our members our current carving piece, placing the pic directly into the board the way you do it is great idea, can you share the method with us? Thanks Bill in NY

              There is an icon above and slightly to the right of the smiley with teeth (4th one in). That is the insert image one you want. Click on it and it. Sometimes there is URL directly in the centre of that and if there is, backspace only URL out and leave all the rest.Then paste the URL to your own picture directly between the two outside parts.....Something like this.

              If you want to post multiple pictures, simply repeat the process below the first one like this




              and this



              and off course ....this....;-)

                    WY, I share your interest in clocks although I have not made one by scrolling.  I have built several using my own designs and carving the ornimentation.  It got to the point where I wanted to use clockworks that were worth more than the clock and I stopped making them!  Pictures can be seen on my website http://www.geocities.com/captainbandaids .  The oakleaf clock has a German movement and it has a really beautiful Westminster chime.

                      Beautiful work! I especially like the 'crooked' clocks. Might be time to buy a scrollsaw.

Gorgeous even! Somewhere down below I posted a welcome and it still stands. what a wonderful addition and a wealth of knowledge. Don't be shy in visiting.

                              Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                              Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                              Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
