  • Segmentation Dragon

    Hi all,

    I'm new around here. I bought an old scroll saw at a garage sale a while ago for $15. About 8 months ago or so I started scrolling on and off. I recently got into segmentation and found I really like it.

    Here's my 3rd segmentation project. I can post the first 2 another time, but this one really turned out well.



    I still have a lot to learn, but I'm enjoying the process

    Fantastic! You seem to have a knack for this. Can't wait to see more.

        Welcome Bobman that really does look great, nice stain selection. What kind of saw did you get for $15?

            Rolf: My $15 saw is Delta Shopmaster 16 inch. It has 1 speed, takes plain end blades and requires an allen wrench and an adjustable wrench to place the blade in either side. It does tilt up to 90 degrees in one direction, so it doesn't totally lack for features. I figure I'll get a nice saw after this one burns out or if I find I just can't do what I want on it.

            Hammer: I gave this dragon to a couple, so I haven't really thought of gender... I guess it's a couple dragon?

            Everyone: Thanks for the comments and most of all, validation

                          Thanks for the great comments everyone!

                          Janette - I'm already addicted. I've made a few non-segmentation things (including some toy dragons) but really found my interest with segmentation.

                          scrolling_grandma - I found a picture searching google for dragons. http://bestfreeclipart.com/misc/imag...n3-clipart.jpg I traced the picture in Inkscape, and sized it to what I wanted. I have the original .jpg file, my Inkscape .svg file and a segmented printout set of .pdf files. I could send them if you want, but I don't think I can post them here for copyright issues, and you can probably do well from the linked picture anyway.

                                Looks pretty neat. So it's from a 2x4: 3 in wide, 'bit less then 2 in. high? So how did you get the trunk cut out? You mentioned cutting the sides with a scroll saw, did you slice off two sides and then cut out the middle?...

                                I use sanding sealer on baltic birch plywood, pine and birch if I am going to stain them. Without the sanding sealer, the stain will be blotchy. I use the water base sealer from minwax. After it drys I sand to at least 150 grit and often to 220 grit. Wipe it with a tac cloth then apply the masking...

                                We, our club, delivered over 900 toys last week to The Salvation Army, Ronald McDonald House, and a local children's hospital. Included were most of these trucks. (I sold a few)

                                The real nice thing about using shellac and alcohol mix for ornaments is you only have to wait minutes before you tie in your ribbons and packaging.
