    Another portrait.

    Hi. Another thank you to a helper, one way for my wife and to say thank you to her. I have found ,as I think is well known, that some people do not show on photos or these patterns as well as others. This lady for instance is about 60 or so, she is a neighbour that we have known for a short...

    A portrait.

    Hi. I have only ever used ply, and "ordinary" ply (if there is such a thing) at that. Timber selection here (W A - Oz) is a bit limited or I'm too lazy to look around. I go to our Bunnings - B & Q like? I've never tried a portrait on solid wood but don't doubt that it could be done however...

    A portrait.

    Hi John and All, In defence of myself - for not doing the pattern - I omitted to say that I have a book - "Scroll Saw Portraits" and a computer programme - Coyote Stencil Shop - so I have tried but failed. With the portrait cutting I use spiral blades and yes they are a pain but I find they work...

    A portrait.

    Hi John and All. For portrait patterns I go to:- scrollsaw village and click on pattern request In the past I've had patterns from people in various countries, the latest was Paul from Devon. BUT I do not sell the cut, all for family, friends or people that I think owe a thank you. Regards...

    A portrait.

    Hi John, I've failed to produce a pattern successfully which is why I have to go to another forum. I'm not sure that is correct or right to mention another woodwork site here as I want to support this forum but if there is someway I could let you have the website and still do the right thing by...

    A portrait.

    Hi, I don't contribute as much as I should so here is a cutting I just did of one of my wife's carers (she has dementia - the real reason why I don't do much these days). The hard work - the cuts - I did but the real work, the pattern, was done by Paul from Devon via another forum. My boss lady...

    Austin Healey 3000 - Portrait.

    Hi, A friend has owned an Austin Healey 3000, 60's era for about 20 years and it is finally restored. He and his wife have now returned after some 9000 kilometres over 3 weeks (rather them than me, I'd be OK for an afternoon). So I thought to give him a "portrait' - can a portrait be of a car...

    Stop burning while scroll saw cutting

    Hi. Here in Western Australia there is a wood - WA Sheoak that is impossible to cut, with a scrollsaw, and not burn. However using a clear tape - sellotape - there are no burns. I've used the wood. No isn't a myth, at least here in the underside of the world. Regards. Bob H. p.s. Would be...
