#207539 $48,000.00

Posted by olddust1 on July 29, 2016 - 08:22 PM

As some of you know, 98% of my scroll saw work is to raise funds for my favorite charity, the Arizona Lions Clubs Handicapped Camp. 

( arizonalionscamp.org)

I just sent them another $1,000.00 which makes my total over $48,000.00 up to now.

I used to travel the state to do craft shows but cannot handle them anymore.

I am 82 now so I mainly bar hop with some samples and also have a wall display in a local Cafe.


A few months after the camping season I get some pictures of the campers I have been able to help that year and their smiling faces make it all worth it.


Pick out your favorite charity and devote some time to help support it.

You'll feel great about it.

#238874 Smokin Dopes BBQ

Posted by Bpardue on January 04, 2017 - 12:45 PM

I friend of mine donates the food & his time to cook it for our annual BBQ Fund Raiser at my church. He also cooks in BBQ competitions. As a thank you for everything he has done I took his logo and created an intarsia piece. 

Turned out great and him & his team were blown away with it.

#238562 Joel is sure smarter than me.

Posted by Dave Monk on January 03, 2017 - 02:49 AM

A lady ordered this plaque to give her husband at a supprise party she is having for her husband. The little lettering was sure a challenge for me. I also made one more strip with another degree on it that he hopes to complete in 2018. It took 20 emails back and forth before I came up with acceptable artwork. dave

#111778 Word Art Intersecting Word Art with Inkscape

Posted by Travis on January 30, 2015 - 04:52 PM

I got a question from Robiton where he is trying to design a sign where a script intersects existing word art.  He wants to design it so that it's easy to read, and won't fall apart after cutting.  I put together a quick tutorial on how to create word art that intersects word art.  Enjoy the show!   :popcorn:

#249898 Rack Em Up

Posted by JTTHECLOCKMAN on March 02, 2017 - 03:02 AM

Anyone for a cool game of billiards. Now the contests are over I would like to show off my 2017 Pen Box entry. This too happened to take first place. I had this idea in my head for over a year but was just not able to make it till I was able to return to my shop. I have to say I am sort of strutting my feathers on this one because it came out almost as nice as I envisioned it. I will say I had to make many jigs to pull this off because every detail needed a cut that is not normal. Doing all the compound angle cuts was challenging. Drilling the holes for the pockets needed a jig as well as cutting the rails and trim work. The rails and pockets are joined with mortise and tenon joints because end grain is not a very strong glue joint. I did have an oops when I tried flocking the table and rails. The paint/glue I used was too thick and the fibers did not stick well. I had another can of the stuff so I was able to sand back the old and add the new and it came out well. Was able to get it done in time too. Thanks for looking and any questions or comments are always welcomed. Hopefully I can get the pen I have designed for the box done, very soon. 


I have included a photo of a full size billiard ball which I make clocks out of, for size reference.

My replica pool table box is made from Birdseye Maple and Gabon Ebony. It's measurements are 4-1/2" X 9" which is a scaled down version of a professional table. It was dipped in BLO and then top coated with 6 coats of satin lacquer. The table top has green flocking on the table as well as the bumpers. 
The cues were turned from maple blanks and are also satin lacquered. The butt grips are wrapped with carbon fiber. The billiard balls are miniature replicas. The rail sites are round black Swarovski crystals.
All the materials used were cut and angled using various jigs. The table is an easy lift off to access the pen box compartment which has a green plush felt cushion for any size pen. The lid has guide blocks to properly seat it easily on the box.
This is a neat little box which will enhance that special pen for that special billiard fan.

#246053 Horse Drawn Fire Engine Clocks - Finally Finished!!

Posted by RangerJay on February 09, 2017 - 08:30 PM

Well - it's been a long haul - but after a couple surgeries - and one major blunder that meant the wheels had to be done over again - these clocks are finally done .....


These are a few better pictures than the ones I posted along the way.


Couple things you might be interested in:

  • the plan is from Cherry Tree Wildwood:  http://cherrytreetoy...ine-clock-plan/  - I've sent them a note asking who the pattern-maker is.
  • the horses and harnesses are from Kulp Model Horse Store: http://kulpmodelhorsestore.com/ - this particular harness is a Parade Harness.
  • the plans called for a Fire Bell - but I couldn't find one I liked so I opted for the lanterns - purchased off of Etsy.
  • my wife did the upholstery and acted as Supervisor in Chief.
  • the carriage is made of Walnut, the undercarriage is Red Oak and the Pump Box is Black Oak.
  • the "blunder"? - well - it's not really a good idea to cross the grain when laminating two flat pieces of wood - not sure why but it seemed like a good idea at the time - turned the wheels into real nice pretzels as the shop dried out this past fall ...... seems to me I recall that very basic lesson being taught to me some 40 or more years ago .....

Comments welcome.

#237199 Inaccurate Screen name

Posted by MrsN on December 26, 2016 - 01:12 AM

Some of you may know that even though my screen name is MrsN I really am "the former MrsN" since my divorce a few years ago. Well this Christmas my boyfriend proposed, now I am "the future MrsD"
I had a wonderful Christmas holiday. My boyfriend completely surprised me and I couldn't be happier, but to make the holiday better his parents got me a gross of flying Dutchman blades and some wood for Christmas.
I hope you all have am awesome Christmas holiday!

Posted by dgman on December 12, 2016 - 02:52 AM

This is on a shelf on the middle landing of our staircase. Handmade ornaments from exchanges I have done over the years from folks from all over the world. I can't keep track of all the makers, so if you see something you made, feel free to take credit. I actually have more than I can fit on this tree!

#222552 Falcon burl

Posted by GPscroller on October 14, 2016 - 12:46 AM

Sister in law in BC (British Columbia) gave me three burls a few years ago, so I slabbed them and occasionally I find a pattern that cries to be cut into them.  This pattern by Onder is one example.  Finished with Tung oil.
