  • Projects That Move

    Here are 2 more projects I built that have movement. I seem to enjoy the challenge of getting all parts to line up correctly. Some times this can be a little difficult.

    More good work . Did you paint them by hand or use a spray gun of some sort? Were the components easy to align and assemble?

    I like these working projects and keep promising myself that one day I'll build a Christmas pyramid. One day...

      Very nice work Buzz. After seeing you use of colors, I'm thinking I may have to spring for an airbrush. Sheesh, could you talk to my wife for me ?

        These are great projects! They are a change of pace from the type of projects we see most often.

        I bet the top of that swing carosel was tough to do. The craftsman ship in these is more than just scrolling.

          Great work Buzz!!! I love carousels and before being bitten by the scrolling bug I carved miniature carousel horses. I had planned to build a miniature working carousel incorporating 36 horses. I finished 12 horses and then became addicted to scrolling. I gave the horses to the grand kids and friends and never looked back!!! LOL!! You have me thinking again about possibly combining scrolling and carving and resurrecting that long forgotten project!!!
          If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

              Alignment & Painting

              Gil: I use an air brush for painting all scroll work. I use spray paint cans for painting backing boards, all boards with no cut outs. Components have to be accurately assembled as it is easy to lock up a shaft because of the low torque motors. It simply may take a little minute shimming of parts. Light cardboard, heavy paper etc. will usually do.
              Dan. The top was a little difficult to assemble. I found that using masking tape for the initial fit up worked just fine. Put the tape on the outside of the project and when all fit, I simply cut one seam, placed the top with the inside up on my work bench, glued the joints, stood it back up and re-taped the last seam. I realize this was probably pretty hard to understand, but it is the best I could do. Next time I make a project like this, I will try to take photos for assembly & gluing.
              If anyone would like any more info, please feel free to Email me.

                Wow those are great.. But I know for me that kind of scrolling will be way down the road.

                  Those are great, Buzz. Very impressive. Are you working on the rest of the funfair now?

                  Are they your patterns or did you buy them?

                      Moose. Don't know of any more carnival/fair type rides. If I did I would probably be working on them. I built the Mill Clock which has a moving water wheel. And all designs are purchased. I can hardly make one, much less design any!

                        Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                        Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                        Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                        My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                        I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                        Was it a good idea.....?...

                        Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                        The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
