  • been a while

    it's been a while since i have posted anything. so I figured I would show you the prototype of what I am working on.

    in the pictures are the first ones that I made. they hold a candle glass for a votive.

    however my new design you can accually switch out the front. so you can have some thing for different seasons.

    Nice work! I really like the leaf. I am not sure I like looking at the end grain of the side pieces it detracts from the beautiful details of the uprights. If I may suggest cutting a slot in the base that will fit the upright piece with a router. That will eliminate the side rails.

      Ty yes I had that thought also ROLF. However I don't have a router. I would also do it with a table saw but I don't have one of those either

        Great designs and cut very well! IMHO, I agree with Rolf, about the end grain. Is it possible to use a thicker stock for the bottom and then cut a slot in it with your scrollsaw and use a 'tab' on the front panel so that it sits in the slot...hope that makes sense.

          Just Wondering...

          Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

          With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

          I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

          Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

          I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

          If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

          Hi Linda, great find...I think.

          Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
