  • Compound cut toys.

    I have been making compound cut toys lately. I used a reindeer ornament pattern and altered it a bit to beef it up and modified it to make the horse. The Giraffe is just a prototype now.

                Amazing work Jim. Especially when I think of making 125 of them. Thanks for showing.

                    A friend gave me the pattern of the puppy, although what he gave me was a 2-d toy. (flat) I improvised it, and the same with the cat.

                      I plan to make hundreds more. Our club has been donating over 5000 toys per year for many years now but our club has lost two of our toy makers to poor health and one moved away. We now only have two of us making toys.

                        Are you using pine? I've done a few compound pieces just to try the technique, and did use pine because it was quasi soft and easier to learn with on that thickness. What wood works the best for these for durability, given your experience and expertise?

                          Cedar is agreat wood for compound cutting. I also use eastern redwood, poplar and Cherry. I like cedar the best.

                            I first used poplar and it works well but is slow cutting. I have not tried cedar because it is a weak wood. I work with cedar a lot so I just may try that. Thanks for the idea.

                            I have used 2"x 3" pine or spruce, wall studs. I like the distinct grain in the spruce myself.

                              When people come into ArtCrafters and ask about a scroll saw, I say it is similar to a sewing machine except with small blades.

                              Me - also! I drove from Memphis to Dallas yesterday in heavy rain all the way. Could not use the cruise control. My leg was in a knot.

                              Having said that, I can sit still at the scroll saw for about an 30 minutes at the most before I have to move around; On the lathe, I can also stand in...

                              I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs. All my neighbors know that, when they help me - they walk away with a priceless work of art...

                              Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.
