  • 3 wise men

    I got the set of wise men done for my work Christmas party.

    Woods used were yellowheart, purpleheart, lacewood, padauk, aspen, redheart, yellow birch, cypress, beech, orange parot wood, canary wood, and peruvian walnut. I have 3 more sets I'm working on for Christmas gifts. Thanks for looking.

              Lovely, Cathy. Nice clean lines, well cut and shaped, good colour selection. I don't recognize them. Can you tell me where you got the pattern? Thanks!

                    Thanks for all the nice comments!! I planned on spreading this out a bit, a piece or two a year. However, with my mom's health problems this past year and Kent's mom turning 90 I thought I best not wait! Lou I loved this set when I saw it!! It came from Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts Holiday 2005 issue #21, Pages:62-63.

                    Thanks again for the positive comments. It's nice to feel good about something!!!

                          Cathy,
                          It has been so fun to watch your growth as a woodworker and an artist. These are just wonderful! I can't wait to see what comes from your saw next!

                            Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                            Thanks Rolf,
                            I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                            Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                            This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
