  • Jig saw "yard" art -- this year's Xmas display

    Each of the past 4 years a local restaurant franchise has commissioned me to do come up with artwork and make big pieces for their drive-thru they'll use at Christmas. They don't rotate them, they just keep adding to them (it's a huge long drive-thru. Year 1 was a xmas train. Year 2 was goofing off cows. Year 3 was a nativity. This year-- ice skating cows (yes this is in Phoenix where summers get no snow) as well as a dessert truck. The smallest thing I make for them is 5 feet high, or across. The biggest was 10 feet tall x 4 feet. The pics taken here are in front of a 2-1/2 car garage--just to give you perspective. I'm sharing this with you folks just because I like you all, and hope these images bring a smile to your day. Thanks for letting me share!

      I like them all but the ice cream truck is my favorite! I can't imagine doing something that big. I usually go to the other extreme.

          That is some big sawdust pile!
          Great work on cutting and finishing.

          Too early to leave, too late to call in.

            Thanks guys! The size is a pain but the result is so fun. The food truck was hardest to paint well---I don't do upright (easel style) at all well, so it was laying down when being painted. Picture how unsteady the paint brush hand can be when you have to stand on your tip toes to reach the middle of the board. I'm lucky in a way. The gal who commissions them from me give me the theme, and then she just lets me go in my own direction. This year's guidance was "fun ice skating cows, a dessert food truck, and a sign holding logo cow (this one to be used a variety of seasons)." The first year it intimidated me to no end. The 2nd year was better. The 3rd year was I got this. This year was "Oh yah, I totally have this covered!"

              Makes me wish the rain falling was snow! When you get the whole display set up take pictures. Love the cows falling! Looks like Bruce when he tried ice skating many years ago.

                  Great job! I'm sure the results of this job will guarantee another commission for next year. Thanks for sharing.

                    Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
                    Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

                    I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

                    I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

                    The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

                    Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPDY6M-Lv8
