  • Bass

    Bass plaque is finished. The pattern is by Steve Good. It was cut using 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood and backed with 3/8" Baltic Birch plywood stained Walnut. It was cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1R MGT and #0 Spiral blades. The finish was one dipping in diluted Shellac and two coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Satin with light sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

      Thanks Rodney. Actually a pretty small bass. The project is 8" x 10".

          I love the use of negative space for the person, and your contrasting colors really set it off. Question--if instead of using baltic birch for the backer you were to use 4ply mat board---how would you attach a suitable hanger? Someone has me thinking that with the price of wood that might be a good idea if we can figure out the hanging part!

            Nice job Denny. Steve intentionally makes projects that will fit on a 8x10 sheet as many of his readers do not the the equipment, supplies or skills to print on larger paper.

                Thanks Linda. There are two problems. How to attach the mat board to the object and how to attach a hanger. I do use mat boards, but on portrait style to be framed. I used DHangers on this one. That is why I used 3/8” plywood as a backer.

                  Thanks Scott. On this pattern, Steve has two sizes. I chose the smaller pattern.

                    If you chose to use matt board I would use D hangers like Denny with a screw that does through the matt and into the wood.

                      Couldn't you hot glue saw tooth hangers to the back of the mat board?

                        I’ve been getting my plywood from Wurth Wood Group. I got 3 sheets of 5x8 1/4” Baltic birch for $35. I don’t know where they’re located but maybe there’s one nearby.

                          You mean 4'x8' sheets? Is that $35 each?

                            5x5 Baltic birch b/bb 5ply-vcm 6mm. 49.48 for 2. Of course that was in February. Who knows what it is now. Still a good deal. Just checked the invoice.

                              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.
