  • Enough Gnomes for now

    I made a total of eight of these critters, that will be enough for this year 4 will be sold on consignment one stays home the other 3 will be sold at our fair.
    These are fast and easy segmentation projects. Cheap pine scraps. A bit too soft I may use better wood for next years version. A Bruce Worthington design. Gnome collection 2019 (Medium).jpgGnome with details and color (Small).jpg

            Gnome pun intended?

                Look great Rolf. Still on my to do list. I know I “started” - by getting the patterns and then making the copies needed but not sure I got past that before live got in the way and I got off track. 🥴☺️

                  Great looking pieces. Did you use Unicorn Spit on them?

                    You guys are too funny!

                    Tango, The basic shaping I do as I do all of my Intarsia and segmentation. If you are talking about the grooves, on some I used a wonder wheel but most of them I did with the Vortex F5 I got last Christmas. What an amazing tool that is. It is like writing with a pen it doesn't get away from you. What little fuzzies it creates I just hit with the MAC mop.

                    JIm, the only Unicorn spit I used is the sparkly green on the trees. The main colors Green and Red are alcohol dye, the rest of the bits are acrylics. Nose, beard
                    The blue hat has a natural wood beard.

                    I will modify the design a bit to combine a few of the pieces to simplify it.
                    My dilemma now is do I put hangers on them, or a small magnet in the back for the fridge.

                      Hegner converted their top blower to a vacuum which I really like. What needs to be changed on the Pegas saw? I don’t want to buy something than need to change...

                      Rolf,
                      Most blowers blow the dust from the left side to keep the cutting line clear. Did you disconnect your blower so that the vacuum system sucks the dust from the left keeping the pattern lines clear?

                      I found some small tags at Hobby Lobby. They were in the Jewelry materials section.

                      They were about 3/8" x 5/8".

                      I added a trap to catch the small pieces that I don't want to lose. Also a simple swivel so I can swing the top part out of the way without messing with the upper nozzle. I did not glue the joints in case I get a clog. ...

                      Not something I would probably do--but great work and excellent detail. Thanks for sharing the images and patterns.
