  • Got a chunk of Tupelo.

    I got a 4'x6'x12' chunk of tupelo wood today and haven't decided what to carve. I have seen carvings out of tupelo and heard carvings talk about tupelo wood. Any tips or suggestions. The little bride was thinking on Santa Clauses. No peace around here any more! : Actually, I do like having her around and asking question. At least then she isn't badgering me to do something to the house.
    Safety first, then enjoy carving! Ken Caney, Ks

    I wish my wife would give it a try. I've got a three day weekend starting Saturday and I just know she'll have a few things for me to do :'( I've got at least a half dozen carvings started, one done needing painting, and alot of ideas for more, but having gone back to work two months ago took away too many hours of every day :'( :'( :'(

    Kenny, with a piece of stock that size, you might want to do a duck decoy or something similar. You could always set it on the bench and sit back admiring it for awhile and let it tell you what's inside. It really will if you pay attention and listen to it!

      Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

      Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

      Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

      I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
