  • First Try at a Puzzle

    I have been scrolling for about 3 months now. I have mainly been cutting out names and some small stuff. This is my first attempt at making something like this. This is the pattern that was in the magazine. My wife seen it and wanted me to cut it out of oak or hickory but I used a pine board for my first try. 3 of the letters have been stained. I am very slow at this but I am learning. Thanks to all the tips here has got me a long ways. I know it is not perfect but my first attempt. It took about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to cut. Should it take take that long?

        Very nice. I am still very new to scolling, so I am seeing something new virtualy every day, who'd have thought you could make a recognisable Palmino(is it?) from a word.

            Thanks, It just seems like it takes me a long time to cut things out. But I run my saw pertty slow and take my time. If I run the saw to fast I have a hard time staying on the lines. Sunlion my wife has a quarter horse that is a paint. He is brown and white. Close to a Palmino.

              Speed is not important. Very nicely done.

                  very nicely done for your first puzzle...i cut at what speed feels comfortable for me, sometimes slow, sometimes fast depending on what i'm cutting and how intricate it is ...who cares how long it takes....it's hand crafted and thats whats important.

                      Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                      Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                      Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
