Thumbs up Giving Some Credit For A Great Cut Job

Now I realize this wasn't done with a router, but it's woodworking just the same.

Secondly, I can't STAND these morons, but I gotta give credit for a cut well done!

This was in my scroll saw forum that I was in this morning.

I second your opinion on both counts, Barb. 1: Exceptional scroll work. 2: I can't stand 'em either.

Thanks, Oliver I get hollered at around here when I say something about 'em.

I should also say whoever did the pattern did an amazing job, as well. I got the program, now I have to learn
how to use it. Wanna make scroll and routing patterns (for signs) and thought about sharing them on here, if I can.

I'm only with you 50%, Barb, but I guess that's why there are 100 channels of TV these days.


It's a great cutting, and I am truly impressed at how well the pattern maker captured the photograph, especially in the eye detail. Very nice work.

Any TV show that ends with a family sitting around the table saying grace before the meal is fine with me. It's a shame when my children can't watch half of what is on the "ABC Family" channel because of content.

Well, I guess I agree with 50%. It's great cutting, but I have no idea who those "morons" are.

That pattern is by Charles Dearing.

Google his name and you will see some of the most amazing fretwork patterns around. I do a fair amount of scroll saw cutting, but I can't seem to get into portraits...however if I decide to try it a portrait piece, it will probably be one by Charles Dearing. Folks I have spoken to, who have completed one of his patterns, say they are very challenging to cut, with some having over 100 drilled holes for blade entry points.

Barb, I am also trying to figure out inkscape, it's not a real easy program for me to work with. Looking forward to seeing some of your patterns.

BE WELL

The 'Artistic Cowboy' strikes again. Charles made a pattern for me a few years ago, it is incredible. He converted one of my ship photos into a pattern, it had to be printed at 11 x 17 in order to cut. (even then, I left a few detail sections out)

Best $20 I spent on a pattern.

Rick, I downloaded GIMP to attempt scroll patterns. I did a google for it, and found a pretty good
instruction link on using it. Right now, I'm having difficulty getting the details. But when I get
done, they'll be for routing, rather than scrolling, I think, depending on how well I get the details I
need/want. I have SO many ideas, it's cluttering my brain lol

As for the entry holes, I've done a few with a lot of fret work, and it's tedious to say the least. I
think that's partly why I went to routing less prep work.
