  • Present for my Landlady

    Since we are renting a house in Panama City Beach for the winter, I decided to cut something for our landlady. I asked Sue Mey if she had anything with beach theme motif for a napkin holder, she did not but she said she will try something. Well this is her pattern that is now available on her web site (https://www.scrollsawartist.com/

    It was easy to cut and I think it will go well with the decor, PCB has a very good reputation for their fantastic Beaches.

              You did an excellent job with a beautiful design! I lived in Panama City for 3 years in the late 60's early 70. It has changed a bit since then. I would imagine it is all hotels and condo's along the beach now.

                  During these cooler winter months, the image of palm trees makes me think of warm tropical waters. Very nice!

                    I just bought the pattern from Sue Mey's website, If I may ask, plan on using Black Walnut, suggestion on what Blade[s] to use as its hardwood, and approx 1/2 inch thick, might be a bit thicker as its locally milled.Thinking of scrolling pattern, then slicing in half? Any direction appreciated, thanks.

                      I would not use anything bigger than a #3 I use Olson Mach 3 (13 TPI) Walnut is easy to cut. I you are thinking of slicing it do it before you do the fretwork. Then stack cut them. Slicing after the fact is risky and you may break delicate sections.

                        I used a #3 FDUR and 1/4" oak and stack cut the two pieces together with a dab of hot glue on each corner, for the base I used 1/2" and same size blade.

                              Very nice gift for your landlady. I am sure she will love it. On our last vacation along the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien, we purchased an indoor/outdoor thermometer for the cottage as a gift. Needless to say, the weather had been on the chilly side while we were there in October.

                                Lee, we have a pen turner displayed at ArtCrafters. Many of the pens are $25 and we sell maybe 4 - 5 each month. I am sure at a place like Knoxville he could more than double the price....

                                We could not do that in our kitchen the ceiling and walls are way too crooked. So to fool the eye some of our cabinets go all of the way up with trim molding the others are lower also with crown molding. There is no continuous line to catch the eye.

                                WHAT? We’re taking them down? Bruce decided he should have put them flush with the ceiling so we’re taking them down and raising them 1/2”!!! Do you know how heavy these are? He decided he wanted as narrow as possible, or no, molding at the top at all. And yes, Scott they have stuff in them.😲😲...
