  • sawdustus of hiawatha

    I have been a member since June and this is my 1st attempt at sending a picture of my work. Cousins of ours saw a picture I scrolled for my wife and I from a design by Floyd Jensen and Rick Parsons but wanted a pair of loons facing each other along with the sentiment instead of the leaping dolphins in the original. They picked the loon from a Patrick Spielman book of patterns. It took longer to lay out and design the pattern than to cut it, but what else is new. I cut it on my 18" Delta Q3 model 40-650, using a # 5 spiral blade for the waves ( it allowed me to cut each wave in one pass) and a #2 reverse tooth blade for the rest. It is a very aggressive but variable speed saw but after 7 years of using it I have a reasonable amount of control (most of the time). The picture is cut in 1/8 walnut then glued to a 1/8 birch ply backer. The picture is 22" x 7.5" and the frame is shop made from 3/4 x 1 walnut scraps (of course) from another project. The finish is both sprayed on and wiped on gloss poly.

              Thank you all for the nice comments. They are really appreciated. Evie, the saying was scrolled and says - Find joy in being together - that's what was on the original and what my cousins liked so much.

                That's some nice creative combining and cutting. I like the saying that goes with it - the whole piece brings on a sense of tranquility.
