My First Inlay

General Scroll Sawing Yesterday, 09:46 PM
I had  wanting to try some inlay but had not exactly figured out how.  I did read the thread by Jim Finn and used it to help me with my first attempts.   I used 1/4" red oak and pine and attached a pattern of some simple shapes and letter to them with blue tape and then spray adhes...

New bauble design

Bragging Rights Yesterday, 08:21 PM
The wife wanted a bauble making for her pet hedgehog so I put this together, it's simple but does the job, the outer ring is painted silver (but you can't tell by the pic) with a black backer and I left the hog bare wood.

Thank you for commenting. May I suggest you use thicker timber than 8mm :-) If you are using Oak, pay attention to the direction of the grain before applying the pattern, I'm still learning the hardway!! In hindsight I should have enlarged the pattern. Were I do to it again, where the stand adjoins the 'feather' of the right wing (looking at the picture above) I would thicken this part of the pattern before cutting. I have found this section to be the most fragile of all (there really is only a poofteenth of a millimetre holding this!!) no fault of the pattern designer - just mine!! I used 4 of the FD UR#5 blades...probably an overkill. Good luck and show us :-) Cheers

    Making A Coat Rack

    Travis - Jul 23, 2015 06:57 PM

    So I'm messing around with a new YouTube channel where I show my process of making stuff. Most of it will revolve around woodworking, art, craft, and other geeky things. It should be a lot of fun. If you're a YouTube user, I'd love to have you as a subscriber. I have a few ways you can follow me and my new channel.WebsiteYouTubeFacebookInstagramPinterestI have a few videos now and hope to c...

    Unburied by scroll saw

    kkrunde - Jul 22, 2015 11:09 PM

    We had to quickly clean out our storage unit in the spring and sadly the only place to put the stuff was around all my equipment. But we donated most of the stuff in the last few weeks, so I can finally get to the scroll saw. I want to make a cabin with some trees, but haven't decided yet how I want to go about it. I saw this neat idea to use old, worn boards, cut out the shapes, and then pa...

    Cigar factory furniture part 12

    grosa - Jun 23, 2015 12:11 AM

    Back to the hall table. Picture 1, 2, 3, shows the pedestal after I pulled off all the tape. At this point it has been stained and 2 coats of pre cat lacquer have been sprayed and sanded. Picture 4, 5, I pre fit the overlay and make marks at the bottom for alignment. Picture 6,7, I use 1/4" MDF on both sides to protect the wood from the clamps. I am only applying the overlay on one side at a ti...

    Cigar factory furniture part 11

    grosa - Jun 16, 2015 11:02 PM

    It's time to get back to the conference table and finish the arm rail. The granite is done and Ron and I made the paper template. It was dark in the shop that day because it was raining all day. Picture 1, I setup the router and tramel to cut the outside edge of the rail. I did it in three passes with a single flute bit to remove material quickly. Picture 2, a close up of the first cut. Picture...

    Cigar factory furniture part 10

    grosa - Jun 09, 2015 12:11 AM

    Making the base. Picture 1, this is the Sapele lumber I am using for the base. It is prepared on the jointer, planer, wide belt sander. Picture 2, It's cut into the size I need. Picture 3, some of these pictures are a little blurry because the camera was not on the right setting but you will get the idea. After cutting the 45's on the ends I use a Hoffmann machine to pull the miters together. T...

    From: Turnings for an island

    grosa - Jun 07, 2015 05:12 PM

    These turnings were 3" x 3" x 34", Poplar. I designed the template and cut it out on the scroll saw. Put the template on the Vega duplicator and turned them. About 1 1/2 hours. Source: Turnings for an Iisland
