  • Another one

    The first one went so well I need to make another.
    This one is for a lady and will get a few flowers and butterflies in the center section.
    Made from the same piece of cherry. Had to change the grain direction to make it fit on the 15x6.5" pc.

    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

      Here's the pattern Tim. I only pinned the four corners. I clamped the pieces together and drilled them by hand (cordless) then cut dowels and secured themwith a drop of super glue on the outside end. You will have to round the pieces a little so the hinge can swing.

        Oh, yeah! I MUST do this! Thanks for the tip on pinning only the upper and lower points - what a cool way to join the panels.

          Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

          Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

          Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
          Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
