  • Oily's Illusions

    Have been working on a couple of Oily's Illusion patterns. The first one I finished is "A Different Tree Of Life". It's a little hard to see all of the faces in such a small picture, but should be an eye catcher at shows.



    The other one I have finished is "Lion-Mouse". Tho pictures of the same cutting - 180 degrees rotated.



    Thanks, Oily for the patterns. Hope the cuttings meet with your approval.

            Just a tip...

            Here is the preferred way to post photos. This method will apply a thumbnail so that messages load faster, keeping those who are still on dial up in mind.

            If it is a new thread scroll down below the message box to additional options and look for manage attachments,Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
            Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
            If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.

            If you are uploading a picture to an existing thread (conversation)
            Click on the Go Advanced button under the reply box, Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
            Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
            If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.
            Good luck



            Great job on the cuttings!

                          That first one, A Different Tree of Life, is cut beautifully!!

                          What is the stock? How thick the wood?
                          Where can I get that pattern? (I wanna do dat, too!)

                            John

                            Thank you very much for the roses.

                            The wood is 3/4" American Mahogany - at least that's what my lumber supplier told me.

                            I, too, noticed that his pattern was not one of the ones that Oily put up. Oily, can you help John with the pattern?

                            Oily, I have your pattern cleaned up (yours was very fuzzy). If you like I can upload mine.

                                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...

                                I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

                                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
