  • Mother's Day Present

    This is something i made my dear old mum for mother's day, i got the flower plan out of a library book entitled-The Art of Intarsia-projects and patterns, by Garnet Hall.



    The wood for the flower came from an old bread bin my wife did'nt want, all i know is when it was bought it said it was "Rubberwood". The plate i turned from an old chopping board and have no idea what it is.For my first try i must admit to being very pleased with the result, it was finished using a water based clear varnish, and the flower was finished with water based mahogany varnish.I'll post more pictures in the gallery.

          Very nice Kevin, the simple flower was one of the first ones I did. My first, the Rose, is also from that
          book.

                  Looks like the chopping block was white ash..but can't be too sure with the photo quality, but white ash is certainly hard enough for chopping block material. I'm thinking the real life look is a golden white with golden brown streaks? The flower looks great too, your mother should be proud.

                    Thanks to everyone for the kind comments, Diane my mother lives not far from me, Mother's Day was March 18th here in the U.K. and our clocks go forward this coming weekend, "HOORAY" it's also now officially Spring,"HOORAY". It was really good to get back in the shop and do some work after having so much time off with pain, touch wood as long as i don't spend too much time in one working position i seem to be alright, so i'm giving myself say 20 minutes sawing,20 minutes sanding and 20 minutes rest and things are o.k.

                      Welcome Ian from Reno Nevada! Glad to have you aboard. Some saws can be frustrating, and others we love. Lots of help available here.

                      $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.

                      After cleaning the wheel and going through the drawers he found all the attachments/tools that came with the grinder. He priced everything and it was $500 plus. A member was selling the tools tor the wife of a member whose husband died last year. You think SLRA is picky with measuring, you should see...

                      Yes, there is a market for the original. I think there are a couple other FL scrollers on this site. There are also a few on the Scrollsaw Village site. I would try scroll saw sites before I attempt Facebook Market Place or Craigslist....
