  • Elliot Door label

    For my little nephew Elliot (my nephew Fred's boy), I made this door label with his name and a little addition of his totem animal, the wolf, perched on a rock begging at the moon for a good meal and a nice .....louve!

    IMG_2274 (3).jpg

    The nameplate is made of maple on a red background (his favorite color), and the moon is a thin piece of marquetry glued on an MDF, and looks like the moon and its craters.... The wolf and the rock are 2 pieces of black plastic, thin, cut with a scalpel, from a drawing found on the WEB, then glued on the wood.
    Its name is cut at scrollsaw
    Finishing with oil + wax
    I had a lot of fun varying it several times with different drawings, before this one. 😊

      Like the design.
      Looks like this could be a great craft show item. An assortment of things to choose from for the left side and then cut the name. Easy to mail when completed.

            I really like that. I have an Elliott grandson. I think he needs something like that for his room!

              When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

              Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

              Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

              Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
