    New Pattern/Project Computer Program

    Those of you who are familiar with the "MeonaPumpkin" computer software may be aware already that Carving Technologies has come up with a new software package called "Coyote" that allows the scroll sawyer easily make project patterns for both fretwork and intarsia designs. It is...

    replied to old mooner.
    Thank you all very much for the birthday wishes. I 'preciate them all. I'm still around, just haven't posted much lately because I have reverted back to carving for a while and have nothing to add to most of the discussions.
    Its hard for me to realize I have been around for as long as I have....

    replied to ? for spiral blade users
    I agree with Bill. I use spiral blades a lot and find that just slowing the feed rate in complicated areas helps a bunch. The speed of the saw is up to you and your technique. Remember that a "pattern" is just that--a pattern. Admittedly, you have to be creful to not "mess up"...

    replied to Spiral Blades
    Well, let me add my nickel's worth. I have used spirals for a long time and find them very useful and not hard to use at all. 'Course they take some getting used to after using flats exclusively. I use 2/0 flat end spirals from Olson most of the time and have had no problem with them "snapping"...

    replied to Workshop ponderings
    I have to agree with Neal and Gill. Sorry Kevin. Anything posted on a forum is fair game and should be discussed and passed on. "Tutorials" containing common knowledge materials like finishing techniques, etc cannot be considered "owned" by any one individual. Zaffino has mentioned...

    replied to Saw Blades for a beginner
    There are no "blades for a beginner." All the different blades have different characteristics and are like musical instruments. What works best for one sawer might not work so well for another. You have to try different sizes, types, and brands to come up with your own "best."...

    replied to Portrait framing
    Bruce--you are gonna get all kinds of answers to your question, but I, personally, put mine under glass/acrylic. Otherwise dust will get between the frets and the black (I'm assuming black) background even if you don't get broken pieces. The glass also keeps the fretwork from bowing/curling due to...

    replied to How about a TV Show
    I agree with you Neal, but unfortunately Gill is correct concerning the "younger" generation. They lose interest quickly and most of them can't stand to read. My internet economics classes always filled up before the standard lecture/textbook classes. The strange thing is that more books...

    replied to Need Some Help
    I don't know what kind of "oderless mineral spirits" you used Neal, but if it had linseed oil in it it will take forever to dry. Back when I was a "painter" in art school, we used turpentine or linseed oil as a medium because that is all there was and it takes "oil" paint...

  • Evie--The procedure you describe is the one used by Jeff Zaffino, but he does it after he cuts. Soaking the whole thing after it has been cut gets all the inside areas as well. 1/2 spirits and 1/2 BLO really makes the grain stand out and is a great finish (I have used it) but it takes several days...

    replied to Wildwood Designs
    Having said that, I must tell you that I am no longer a customer at either Wildwood Designs or the Winfield Collection because of their policies on their so-called copyrights. No, I don't mean to open up again the copyright thing. I think that has been beaten to death.

    Whoopee! Way to go Evie! While I can see W.Y.'s point, I don't necessarily agree ith it. I will feel free to introduce and discuss any topic I see fit. It is completely possible that the same topic may be being discussed in many forums at the same time without me having any knowledge of that fact....

  • I think part of the problem with people posting is the summer doldrums and vacation time. It usually picks up in the wintertime. Speaking for myself, I sometimes get weary with the same stuff being repeated over and over. I realize, however, that there is a need for repetition for the new members....
