  • Cedar Fret Project

    I'm working on a wolf fret project cut from 1/2" aromic cedar, this is the 1st time using this type of wood, a guy I work with donated it to me, since is was free I couldn't turn it down. What should I do to finish it? I have some deft spray on the shelf, also some watco danish oil. Keeping cedar smell is not important. Any help well appreciated.

    I would soak it in some lemon oil and after a couple of days shoot it with the Deft spray lacquer....my two cents worth .........MB .........

      ..Dependingon the age of the cedar there MIGHT be too much oil left in it to hold the deft spray....(might bubble or blister as the oil comes to the surface ...i DID have that experience long ago when we used cedar to line a closet..(.not scroll sawing.)..don't know how long it would take for this to happen...our closet started reacting in less than a year and continued til the home was sold 6-8 years later.
      This cedar was actual lumber purchased from a lumber yard, don't know what drying methods were used on it in those days.

        I work alot with cedar and I always finish with Formby's Tung Oil. I brings out the natural colors of cedar real well.

          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

          I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

          First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
